Dave Maass, the Project White House 2012 campaign coordinator for the great state of California, had a recruitment party for Project White House 2012 this week in San Diego. He found four new candidates, including Tommy Hough, an environmental activist in those parts who has a number of campaign promises we can get behind, including a proposal to have Gov. Jan Brewer declared an illegal immigrant.
Maass has details at his blog:
Lorena Gonzalez, CEO of the local labor umbrella group, decided not to fill out paperwork last night to run for president in Arizona after all—but four other locals did, including CityBeat editor David Rolland.
Here's the back story: To get on the Arizona presidential primary ballot, all a qualified candidate's got to do is send in a notarized, two-page nomination form. CityBeat made it even easier by recruiting notary public Sara Honadle from Coast Law Group to certify the documents for free at El Take It Easy in North Park.
El Take It Easy owner Jay Porter submitted his name for the ballot, telling CityBeat he'll make the gimlet the official White House cocktail. Rolland and CityBeat advertising account executive Jason Noble also filled out the paperwork.
