Escort a man around state capital (10)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

sacramento

Here is my best explanation:

'state capital' is the definition.

(Sacramento is an example)

'escort a man around' is the subsidiary indication.

'around' indicates anagramming the letters.

'escort'+'a'+'man'='escortaman'

'escortaman' with letters rearranged gives 'sacramento'.

(Other definitions for sacramento that I've seen before include "State capital of California", "Capital of California" and "California state capital".)
