"See Jon Run": Jon Runyan, Retired Philadelphia Eagles Offensive Lineman, Elected to Congress!!!

"See Jon Run" Written by: Michael Hammond Jr.
The Republican candidate and retired Philadelphia Eagles offensive lineman, was elected to Congress in New Jersey’s third district on Tuesday. He defeated John Adler in the race, which was a closely-watched battle that was on the national radar. Runyan's victory played into the GOP wave that changed the leading party in the House. 

During the election's final days, Runyan was able to capitalize when Adler was reportedly involved in an attempt to plant another candidate on the ballot. It was suspected that Adler would have done so to siphon off votes from Runyan.
Runyan, 36, will join Byron "Whizzer" White and JC Watts, among others, as NFL players who held major public office. If his congressional career is anything like his NFL career, Runyan should do alright. During his 14-year NFL career, the offensive lineman was 7-2 when visiting D.C. to play the Redskins.
