Don't vote for me!

Seems not everyone up for election really wants the job!

A candidate in local elections in the US state of Minnesota is having trouble persuading voters not to elect him.

Paul Herold does not want to hold public office, but voters in the town of Blaine have catapulted him into the final stage of the municipal election.

Mr Herold originally signed up to run for City Council but landed a new job that he said would not allow him enough time to devote to his constituents.

Unfortunately for Mr Herold, he still got enough votes to advance to the next stage against incumbent Katherine Kolb.

Reminds me of the "None of the Above" campaign in the excellent Brewsters Millions!
