Norman Mailer for mayor
The novelist/journalist, Norman Mailer, once ran for the mayor of New York City. He ran in conjunction with the columnist Jimmy Breslin who ran for City Council President. This was in 1969. One of the keys to their campaign was for the city to secede from the state of New York and to become the 51st state. Neither one of them won the election.
