In his first interview since registering the biggest upset of the June primary season, 17th Congressional District candidate Ro Khanna returns to the East Bay Citizen Podcast.

Khanna candidly says he didn't anticipate beating Rep. Mike Honda in the primary earlier this month. The nearly two point margin puts Khanna in an advantageous position for the November rematch.

Later, Khanna lays out his progressive vision for the district that includes Fremont and portions of Santa Clara County all the way to San Jose, in addition, to his stances on marijuana legalization, affordable housing and rent control.
