New York: Aruna Miller, an Indian American civil engineer who has worked for 25 years in Maryland to ease traffic congestion and improve public safety, raised $229,276 in the first quarter of 2021 for another potential congressional run, according to a media report.
The majority of Democrat Miller’s donations came from her supporters in Maryland, according to her campaign’s first report filed with the Federal Election Commission.
Miller, a former Maryland State Delegate (Legislative District 15, 2010-2019) does not accept any corporate PAC money, according to a press release from her campaign.
Miller had run from Maryland’s open 6th Congressional District in 2018, but lost the Democratic primary to the eventual winner, Rep. David Trone.
“I am humbled by the outpouring of support locally and nationally. If Maryland’s 6th Congressional District seat opens up, I will run a campaign that speaks to the needs of our constituents and that helps build a more just and inclusive nation, one that works for all of us,” said Miller.
Since early 2021, Miller has been organizing and raising money to launch a campaign for MD-06 should Trone decide to run for a different office, the release said.
