New Jersey Democrats have convinced nine-time Olympic gold medallist Carl Lewis to run for state Senate. They don’t seem to be bothered by the fact that he has absolutely no political experience. 

- I’m sure that’s a hurdle he’ll have no problem getting over. 

- When he announces his candidacy, he’ll kneel down on a block, and the head of the DNC will shoot a pistol in the air. 

- If he loses, he’ll lose faster than any candidate in history! 

- They were going to ask Olympic Swimmer Michael Phelps to run, but they figure the state is already under enough water.
