Ex-Miss America Launches Congressional Bid

Miss America 2003 Erika Harold launched a congressional campaign in her native Urbana, Illinois on Tuesday, according to the State Journal-Register.

Harold will challenge freshman Rep. Rodney Davis (R-IL) in the 2014 Republican primary. The state GOP passed her over for the seat last year in favor of nominating Davis.

Another former Miss America crown holder, Heather French Henry, told the Lexington Herald-Leader in May that she’s been encouraged to challenge Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) for the Kentucky U.S. Senate seat.
