Fifty-five-year-old Indian-American business consultant Puneet Ahluwalia is running for the Republican nomination for Lt. Governor of Virginia saying the state needs new leadership to attract investment, jobs, growth, and wealth.
"Virginia needs new ideas and a business environment that will attract investment, jobs, growth, and wealth," said the Delhi-born Ahluwalia in a note to his supporters.
He further noted that Virginia needs to support its courageous police, and protect 2nd Amendment rights, and stand up for law and order, according to an India TV report.
Ahluwalia is a Delhi Public School (DPS) alumnus who immigrated to the US in 1990. He serves as a consultant to international businesses on client acquisition, marketing, and strategic affairs with The Livingston Group.

"I am not a politician; I am a proud American living the American dream,” he added.
Ahluwalia also serves on the Northern Virginia Republican Business Forum.
