Lee Iacocca has pitched a lot of things in his life: cars, electric bicycles, olive oil spread -- and now a gubernatorial candidate.
The former head of Chrysler Corp. is appearing in TV commercials for Republican businessman Dick DeVos, who's running for governor in Michigan. "The most important thing Dick DeVos makes is Michigan jobs," Iacocca, a California resident, says in the 30-second commercial. "If you ask me, that's what Michigan needs right now."
But Democratic incumbent Jennifer Granholm may not need to worry. Iacocca's electric bicycles aren't exactly clogging the streets. And when's the last time you saw a tub of Olivio?
