Daniel ``The Wig Man'' Vovak, who ran for U.S. Senate in Maryland and other offices while wearing a Colonial-style white wig, has died. He was 39.
Vovak's brother, David, told The Baltimore Sun that Vovak died of cancer on Saturday at Casey House hospice in Montgomery County.
Vovak unsuccessfully sought the Republican nomination for Senate in 2006 against former Lt. Gov. Michael Steele, who lost in the general election to Democrat Ben Cardin. Vovak said he wore the wig to attract attention to his campaigns.
During that race, Vovak went to court to put his full nickname ``The Wig Man'' on the primary ballot. An Anne Arundel County Circuit judge dismissed the complaint.
