Former "Apprentice" Star Announces Run for GOP Representative

Raj Bhakta, the aspiring “Apprentice” turned aspiring politician, is running for Congress.

Bhakta is running against a freshman democrat in Pennsylvania:

Bhakta received the county GOP’s endorsement days before making his announcement Monday.

“We offer voters legitimate change,” Bhakta said. “I am not a politician. I am someone from a business background who wants to make a change.”

If elected in November, Bhakta said he would serve a maximum of three terms and called on Schwartz to agree to the same term limits.

Schwartz’s press secretary, Rachel Magnuson, sidestepped the term-limit challenge, calling the freshman congresswoman someone who has worked hard for the people of her district.

Bhakta, 30, is best remembered for his flashy bow ties, being turned away by tennis star Anna Kournikova for a coffee date, and flirting with Trump’s secretary after being booted from the show. He manages a real estate development firm in Fort Washington.

There is currently only one Indian American in Congress, Louisiana Republican Representative, Bobby Jindal.
