He may not be on the ballot for Duluth mayor, but don't count him out. Mr. Nice is in the race to win, said assistant Allen Richardson.

Supporters of Mr. Nice, a blue puppet, are holding a rally at Lake Avenue and Superior Street at 4:20 p.m. today.

"He'll be ranting and raving on the issues," Richardson said. "It will be a whirlwind ride of high-minded rhetoric. He'll be unleashing the unbridled power of his toxic charisma."

Earlier this year Mr. Nice was told that he couldn't be on the ballot because he's a piece of art, not a real person. That stand by the powers that be saddened but didn't surprise Mr. Nice, who decided to run a write-in campaign.

``He's in it to win it and he's going the distance," Richardson said. "It's absolutely inconceivable that he would not have a good showing on Tuesday."
