"Bid" for the city council


Senior Member
Later, Elsie Hillman, chairwoman of the Pennsylvania Republican
Party, whom I first met after she read in the New York Times
about my unsuccessful bid for New Haven City Council in my
sophomore year at Yale, lent me money and advice and encouraged
me to attend business school.

My best guess is attempt to join, is that correct?
