GOP Candidate for 13th Congressional District Announces Bid
GOP Candidate for 13th Congressional District Announces Bid
A onetime Miss America from Urbana wants to take her skills to Washington, D. C. Erika Harold is doing it by challenging first-term incumbent U. S. Rep. Rodney Davis (R-Taylorville) in the Republican primary.
Harold, who graduated from the University of Illinois and Harvard Law School, says her
experience as a health care attorney can help her examine Obamacare. She says she is more service-minded than politically motivated and does not much care what other people think of her decision to run in the 13th Congressional District.
Harold recently moved from Chicago back to Urbana. She was Miss America in 2003.
