John Runyan Running For Congress in New Jersey

Or he will, after one more year in the NFL. From CQ Politics.

"I personally informed the Republican County Chairmen in NJ's 3rd Congressional District that after the season is over I plan to officially retire from football and pursue a campaign for the United States Congress," he said in a statement.

Maybe he and Heath Schuler can start some sort of cross-party NFL caucus, in which they can craft pointed barbs at Dan Snyder as House Resolutions. (That will take Runyan winning, of course, which seems to me to be a bit on the unlikely side).

CQ Politics can talk about 'name recognition' all they want--having a recognizable name is one thing; being remembered as being a big fat guy who stops other big fat guys from going where they want to go isn't a well known prerequisite for political office (last time I checked).
