Hi,

What is the meaning of get some one on the run and caught up with them in the following text?

"We've got these clowns on the run!" he announced jubilantly. "Their dirty tricks have caught up with them.

Please note that the context is a campaign and the campaign manager of one opponent is speaking.

Thanks
