Bhakta of Fort Washington, Pa., is considering a long shot Republican run against Rep. Allyson Y. Schwartz, D-Pa., the Philadelphia Inquirer reported Tuesday. Schwartz defeated Republican Melissa Brown by 15 percentage points in the last election.
"Why do I want to get my brains beaten in?" Bhakta told the Inquirer. "Because I've always had a deep love of this country. I have a special appreciation as a first-generation American."
