Atlanta (AP)- For this run, Carl Lewis will need a nice suit, tie and a platform – instead of shorts, cleats and a track. The former Olympic gold medalist says he’s running for New Jersey Senate. Lewis announced his candidacy outside a historic courthouse in his home county. It’s Lewis’ first bid for elected office – and he says he had just registered to vote in New Jersey before announcing his candidacy.  The GOP incumbent said through a spokesman that while Lewis was a great athlete, all people know about him is that he just got around to registering to vote in his home state.
