The entries continue to pour in for Project White House, the first-ever Tucson Weekly presidential campaign contest!
Full details on our Reality Journalism undertaking can be found here, but in a nutshell: We’ll help you get on Arizona’s Feb. 5 presidential primary ballot and cover your campaign if we decide that you’re newsworthy. All you have to do is fill out a simple, two-page form. No fees, no signature gathering.
Is this a great state or what?
Just this morning, we met Daniel Kingery, who just sold his Willcox Laundromat and set out across the country to launch his ’08 campaign. Kingery’s first stop: Weekly World Headquarters to get his nomination form notarized.
Kingery is the type of candidate who comes up with innovative solutions for vexing problems. Here’s just one example: When he had trouble with government officials who wanted to shut down a junkyard he was running in New Hampshire, he declared it a “cultural facility” and hired some strippers to perform.
Anyone who can transform a junkyard into a strip club deserves serious consideration from voters. Learn more about Kingery at his Web site.
Don’t miss your chance to be part of Project White House. Entries are due by midnight, Friday, Dec. 7. Get your platform together now!
