Arguably the least recognizable name on this list, Antonio Delgato does have some artistic bona fides, having worked in the music industry in L.A. for a stretch and releasing a hip-hop album under the name AD The Voice. Delgado has since left his music career behind, moved back to his home state of New York, and worked as an attorney before deciding to run for a seat in Congress in 2018. He won that election against incumbent John Faso and became the first person of color to be elected to the House of Representatives from Upstate New York.
