Onetime Steely Dan and Doobie Brothers guitarist Jeff
"Skunk" Baxter is expected to run for Congress next year as a
representative of the San Fernando Valley region of California, according
to the New York Times. The Times quoted Rep. Tom Davis, R-Va.,
as saying Baxter would run as a Republican to
attract nontraditional voters to the GOP ticket. Other outsider candidates
reportedly include several former professional wrestlers who wish to
follow in the footsteps of Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura.
