Former Miss America To Run For Congress, As A Republican

From Politico

For the former Miss America who just jumped into the race for Illinois’s 13th Congressional District, the Republican primary might be, well, a bit like a beauty pageant.

Erika Harold told POLITICO, referring to her challenge of Rep. Rodney Davis in the GOP primary
Harold, 33 and single, is a Harvard-educated attorney, a born-and-bred local and was a delegate to the 2004 Republican National Convention. She won the Miss America crown in 2003.
