Ro Khanna Rakes in the Cash to Outpace Rep. Mike Honda

Considering the political warchest at his disposal, Ro Khanna presents a very real threat to U.S. Rep. Mike Honda’s re-election hopes.

Silicon Valley attorney Ro Khanna raised more than $1 million in the second quarter of 2013, ending June with more than $1.7 million in the bank as he campaigns to unseat Rep. Mike Honda (D-San Jose) from California’s 17th District House seat. That means, to date, Khanna has raised $2 million, a stunning figure for an unproven congressional candidate.

They don’t have to look far for good role models. David Packard, Bill Hewlett, Steve Jobs and Gordon Moore were masters at molding their public image.
