Political chatter from DC and NYC, the amNewYork way

Meet Bragg Van Antwerp

Bragg Van Antwerp, 31, is an Alabama native now nearing his ninth year in New York. Though he works on Wall Street, he is a huge political junkie and has been for as long as he can remember. In 1988, he dressed up as Michael Dukakis for Halloween, (though not as a show of support). A lifelong Republican, Bragg is trying to become more enthusiastic about John McCain, a process helped along by the fact that he is opposed to just about everything Barack Obama stands for – assuming he does, in fact, stand for anything other than simply “change.” Bragg gets the sense that, much like Manhattan in general, he is in the political minority of the Politirazzi, but he is looking forward to providing a voice for the other 16 Republicans living in New York City!
