The child of immigrants, Raja grew up in Peoria, Illinois. He attended public schools in Peoria and was a valedictorian of his high school class. Scholarships and student loans allowed Raja to graduate summa cum laude from Princeton University with a degree in mechanical engineering and a certificate from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public Policy. In November 2016, Raja was elected to represent the 8th District of Illinois. Raja knows our government works best when it works for all of us. That’s why he’s fighting to reform campaign finance laws and to overturn the Supreme Court’s erroneous Citizens United decision.
