California attorney Harmeet Dhillon in running for DOJ top job

A top California state Republican operative is a front-runner for the position of chief of the Civil Rights Division in the Justice Department, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Harmeet Dhillon, a successful trial lawyer in California, the first woman and Indian-American to represent her state in the national Republican Party, if selected for the post would replace Vanita Gupta, another Indian-American who held the post in the second term of the Obama administration. Dhillon could not comment on the matter when contacted.

Dhillon received national recognition when she covered her head with her shawl and said a Sikh prayer at the Republican Party Convention last year where President Donald Trump was anointed as the candidate for the White House.
