NEW YORK - Sensitivity over outsourcing appears to have swung support of Indian-Americans away from Barrack Obama to Hillary Clinton in the race for U.S. president.
The New York Daily News said Clinton, a Democratic senator from New York, received $2 million in contributions during a weekend fundraiser in Manhattan attended by prominent members of Indian community.
The newspaper said Monday the event came a week after the presidential campaign of Obama, a Democratic senator from Illinois, circulated a memo attempting to pin Clinton as being tied to companies in India that do outsourcing work for U.S. firms. The seeming gaff came at a time when the generally well-heeled Indian bloc has become more active in presidential politics.
