Boyband 98 DEGREES have reformed to help bandmate JUSTIN JEFFRE's bid to become Cincinnati, Ohio's next mayor.

The pin-up group, led by Nick Lachey, reunited at a rally for Jeffre at the weekend (03SEP05) where they signed autographs and posed for pictures at a party held in his honour.

Lachey also made a pitch on stage for Jeffre's candidacy, stating, "It's a very important time for Cincinnati. Don't take it lightly. This is a big deal, and this guy knows what he's talking about."
