RIVERSIDE, CA: After the California Citizens Redistricting Commission approved final congressional district maps, Democrat ShrinaKurani announced running for Congress to challenge Congressman Ken Calvert in the newly-drawn 41st District in Riverside County CA.

The district stretches from Corona to Palm Springs and includes the cities of Menifee, Lake Elsinore, Rancho Mirage, La Quinta, and a portion of Riverside. Congressman Ken Calvert has represented the region in Washington for nearly 30 years.

In the 2020 election, voters within the new district lines were split between Biden (48.6%) and Trump (49.6%), narrowing the results from the previous district in which Trump won by 12% and making the 41st District one of the most competitive across congressional districts in California. Dave Wasserman, an expert in elections, named incumbent Calvert as one of the “biggest losers” in response to the new district lines.

In response to the new congressional map,Kurni said, “I’m a native of the Inland Empire and as an engineer, business leader, and fact-based problem solver, I’m ready to deliver for the people of the 41st District. I’ve spent my career building businesses that reduce waste and create quality jobs. I’m running for Congress to build an Inland Empire where people feel safe, healthy, and have opportunities to succeed in fulfilling jobs. Ken Calvert has been in Washington for nearly 30 years and he’s voted against our interest time and time again. It’s time for a new approach.”

Born and raised in Riverside, Kurani graduated from La Sierra High School at 16 years old and earned her degree in mechanical engineering from UC Riverside. She has worked to start companies aimed at reducing waste and creating sustainable solutions for food and water, and she has served as an advisor to startup businesses that are developing ways to make healthcare and education more affordable, accessible, equitable, and effective.
