Tech entrepreneur running for Congress in Michigan

Suneel Gupta, a former Groupon exec who later founded mobile health app maker Rise Labs (sold to One Medical last year), has announced that he is running for Congress in Michigan's 11th district.

Why it matters: Gupta says he's the first tech entrepreneur to run for Congress in a Rust Belt state. He's also married to tech journalist Leena Rao, best known from her time at Fortune and TechCrunch, and is the younger brother of CNN doc Sanjay Gupta.
