Which Professional Athletes are Running for Political Office Today?

Did you ever watch Shawn Bradley struggle to run down an NBA court and think to yourself “that guy has both the tenacity and shoe size to become a mildly effective politician one day?” Well, now you have the chance to make this dream come true! (As well as all of your Jon Runyan White House fantasies.)

The Wall Street Journal compiled a list of ex-jocks looking to make a political statement in their respective races today:

There are five former pro athletes running for office. Shawn Bradley, the 7-foot-6 former NBA center, is running for a seat in Utah's state House of Representatives. Backup NBA center Chris Dudley is running for governor of Oregon, and NFLers Jon Runyan and Keith Fimian are challenging for U.S. House seats. All are Republicans; the fifth, Democratic Rep. Heath Shuler of North Carolina, is in a tight race for re-election. Two former NFL tight ends—Jay Riemersma and Clint Didier—lost in August GOP primaries for, respectively, House and Senate seats.

Sadly, since the majority of NHL players come from obscure countries like Canada, the sport of hockey is severely underrepresented.
