    running from

    Police had a tough day controlling crowds as the actors staged a roadshow through this city canvassing for Congress candidate Ajay Kapoor, who is in the running from Govind Nagar Assembly segment.

    Please explain the highlighted group of words.

    who is in the running for the Govind Nagar Assembly segment. Typo or misused word. Kapoor is standing for this Assembly.

    Thank you Anglika
    But I can't undestand why he is running?
