There certainly is a question to be asked of all candidates about why they chose to run, but that's a different question from the rather more pointed 'why would someone who professes to little/no interest in TB chose to run for it?'

I can answer: masochism.

Well true. But you might not be aware of the depths of masochism required unless you read TB
