Illinois (TIP): Indian American Vandana Jhingan, the Republican Hindu Coalition-backed
 candidate , has been removed from the official list of Republican 
primary ballot in Illinois’ 8th Congressional District.

Jhingan was one of the two Indian 
American Republicans vying for the GOP nomination to run against the 
incumbent Democrat Raja Krishnamoorthi in the November election.

Jhingan was disqualified after a 
constituent, Steven Anderson, filed a complaint that many signatories to
 her nomination were not residents of the district.

Nonresidents, who are not registered voters, cannot be considered as signatories while filing the nomination.

Ken Menzel who spoke to the local Daily Herald, a second complaint was 
also filed against the Jhingan alleging improper circulation of the

Jitendra Digavker is on the ballot in the Republican primary. He is a 
businessman and runs a successful credit card process firm based in 
Schaumburg, which provides processing services to all types of 


Krishnamoorthi, an 
attorney-turned-businessman, was elected to the US House of 
Representatives from the district in November 2016, defeating Republican
 Peter DiCianni.
