posted by Randall

Niraj Antani23-year old Niraj Antani is one of the youngest lawmakers in the country.

The law school student was selected as the replacement Republican nominee for the Ohio State House of Representatives  after his friend, mentor and incumbent, Terry Blair, died in June. Antani defeated Democrat Patrick Morris.

Antani told the Wall Street Journal he feels a special connection to the Indian American community.

“As the person who is the second Indian American state elected official in Ohio history, I believe that the Indian American community enriches our society,” he said.  “The Republican Party needs to work to bring everyone into our party.”

Antani says he became interested in politics after being admitted into the Washington Leadership Program which matches Indian Americans to internships in the nation’s Capitol.

You can read more about his priorities while in office in the Wall Street Journal.
