I’m not sure what the collective noun for runners is, but from experience, “plague” is as good as any. Evidently, my friend King Banaian, econ prof up at St. Cloud State in Minnesota, is running for the State House of Representatives up there. His district appears to be Democrat, but not irretrievably so. It went for Franken in ’08, but by a relatively small margin, so it seems to be clown-averse to some degree. Whether this is a help or a hindrance for a university professor, even one as level-headed as King, remains to be seen.
