WTF is stumping?

October 21, 2004 at 09:06 AM

"Kerry stumps in Ohio" and "Cowboys officials stump in preparation for stadium vote," since when is stumping a political term? According to Dictionary.com:

To go about making political speeches.

I've seen or heard the word stumps used like this 100 times in the last week, but I had never heard it before that. Is it suddenly clever to use it?
