“I think there is a real opportunity that comes along from a real crisis,” Anthony said in a phone interview with PoliticsPA.
Anthony is a former Shaler area English teacher, who also taught English in Latvia and traveled to over 45 countries. He says that traveling the world has given him a unique perspective.
“You have a different persepctive on your country when you go abroad for a couple of years. You learn about what other people think of America and what it means to be American,” Anthony said.
Anthony says his goal isn’t just to win, but to help create a movement in Congressional districts that are considered to be safely Republican.
“Our goal is to show that no Congressional district is safe Republican. We want to show there is something real and exciting in the Progressive movement,” Anthony said.
Anthony joins Tom Prigg, a Carnegie Mellon University research assistant in the Democratic field.
