From the outside looking in, Brian Sims seems to have it all. Heâ€™s young, energetic, well liked, and his political careerâ€™s on the rise. After becoming one of the first openly gay college football players in NCAA history, Sims went on to law school and embarked on a career as an LGBT activist before becoming the first openly gay candidate elected to Pennsylvaniaâ€™s state legislature. Now heâ€™s ready to take the next step: the US. House of Representatives.
Is Sims crazy? No one seems to have a kind word or thought about Congress. Itâ€™s approval rating hovers around 13 percent and those running for president are actively running against Washington.
This week on the podcast, why would someone like Brian Sims - whoâ€™s got a good job, good home, community, and reputation - run for Congress?
