Ex-Miss America Running for U.S. House Over Abortion Issue. Ms. Mund has decided to take a stand for abortion rights in a deeply conservative state by running as an Independent. She decided to stay on the political fence instead of picking a side. She doesn’t seem to be in this race to win. It seems more likely that she is planting seeds as a new law graduate to build a law career instead. Unfortunately, she will be building her future on death and destruction.
