Olympic champion Carl Lewis will 'run to win' seat in N.J. Senate

Olympic champion Carl Lewis will 'run to win' seat in N.J. Senate

New Jersey Democrats have long been courting Carl Lewis to run for the 8th Legislative District Senate, and today the former Olympic athlete announced he will be running again.

Lewis, 49, said he is challenging incumbent Republican Senator Dawn Addiego in the heavily Republican area about 25 miles east of Philadelphia.

When I run — you can see my record — I run to win," Lewis told a news conference outside Mount Holly's historic courthouse, according to Reuters.

According to the Courier Post, Lewis won four gold medals at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics, defended his 100-meter title in Seoul in 1988 after Ben Johnson was stripped of the medal for doping and won the long jump in four straight Summer Olympics.
