DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) Professional wrestler Rhyno has won a seat in the Michigan Legislature.

Dearborn Republican Terrance Guido Gerin defeated Democrat Abdullah Hammoud, a 26-year-old health care consultant, in Tuesday's election for an open state House district. The 41-year-old, who prefers the name ''Rhino,'' currently appears on World Wrestling Entertainment's ''Smackdown Live.''

His campaign website says Gerin is a ''politician by day'' and a ''professional wrestler by night.'' He says he believes in limited government and will focus on fixing Michigan's crumbling roads and boosting state revenue-sharing to cities such as Dearborn.

He urged voters in the Democratic-heavy district east of Detroit to ''be a Rhino-Democrat.''

Gerin will be paid nearly $72,000 a year as a lawmaker.

I believe that an early report went out that erroneously reported that Rhyno won, and some outlets ran with that, and later corrected themselves with the story that Rhyno actually lost.

You'd think somebody as politically astute as Class would have gotten the correct info... :thinking:
