ERIKA HAROLD: GOP doesn’t want me to run for Congress

 

Former Miss America Erika Harold tells Newsmax TV that the Republican establishment is resisting her candidacy for the 13th Congressional District seat in Illinois, and the only reason they’ve given is that they don’t want her to run against the incumbent.

 

“Those within the political establishment, many of them have not wanted me to wage this campaign but the only rationale that I’ve been given for that is simply: there’s an incumbent,” Harold says.
