Early life and education
After attending elementary school in Bronx, New York while her father completed his medical school, Harmeet Dhillon grew up in Smithfield, North Carolina, but for five years her mother drove her 72 miles to a private school in Raleigh, North Carolina. .
She attended Dartmouth College at the age of 16 and wrote for the conservative student newspaper Dartmouth Review. In her junior year she became editor at the Dartmouth Review. During that time, the review was criticized for publishing an article that attacked the university president James O. Freedman, comparing the Jewish Freedman to Adolf Hitler. Dhillon “denied that the column was anti-Semitic and said the point had been misinterpreted by people trying to distort the issue for their own purposes.” She added, “I could see if you were Jewish, maybe you would be offended.” She said she had asked several Jewish staffers to read the column before she was published, and they told her they were not offended and that they did not expect the column to be considered anti-Semitic.
Legal career and political activism
She was an unsuccessful candidate for the California Assembly from San Francisco in 2008, in a district with only 8% registered Republicans. She surveyed 17% against Democrat Tom Ammiano, the strongest Republican result since 1994. Her mother had picked up her $250,000 war chest from the Indian-American community.
