He was fired by Donald Trump. Now Surya Yalamanchili wants to be hired next year by voters in Ohio.

Yalamanchili, a marketing executive who might be remembered by fans of the NBC reality TV program “The Apprentice,” is running as a political independent for the 2nd District House seat of Republican Rep. Jean Schmidt , according to a statement of candidacy and a statement of organization he recently filed with the Federal Election Commission.

(...)

Yalamanchili, who is not accepting PAC contributions, bemoaned the large amounts of campaign funds that the financial services industry has bestowed on both the Democratic and Republican parties, which he said have engaged in partisan bickering and ignored the nation’s long-term challenges.

Who wants to bet that Surya doesn't make the ballot?

No wonder he didn't win the series if he makes terrible investments like this.
