We’re delighted to announce that we may have more than 20 participants in Project White House, our first-ever presidential campaign contest.
As our blog regulars know, we first launched Project White House a few weeks ago to invite our readers to put their name on the ballot in Arizona’s Feb. 5 presidential primary.
That’s not as difficult as you might think since you merely have to send a two-page notarized form to the Arizona Secretary of State’s Office to run in the Democratic or Republican contest.
We’re not quite sure of the exact number of participants in Project White House just yet, because several of our would-be candidates from across this great land of ours have promised us they’re going to send in a nomination form on their own—and we all know just how much we can count on the promises of politicians.
But at least a dozen candidates have turned up at our office in recent weeks to drop off their platforms and have front-desk chief Robbie Jones notarize their paperwork. Thanks for all your help and patience, Robbie!
We’ll be introducing you to these courageous candidates in our first issue of 2008 when we launch our spectacular Project White House Web site.
Even if you missed your chance to participate in Project White House, there’s still time to get into the presidential primary.
The deadline for getting your paperwork to Arizona Secretary of State Jan Brewer is 5 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 17. Hurry up and download the form.
