Saujani described her ability to mobilize South Asian support as "one piece of a larger strategy, which is getting our Obama-surge voters—people who have not traditionally been part of the political process. Like, we spend a lot of time on Upper East Side moms under the age of 45 who have house parties for us after drop-off."
After a pause, she added, "I've spent a significant amount of my time in Queensbridge and Ravenswood and Astoria housing and in public housing."
(Though Artest was just photographed next to a Saujani supporter at a basketball tournament, which should not imply actual support for her campaign. Presumably he has never held a house party for Saujani after "drop-off.")
