This evening, the deadline to appear on the ballot for the New Hampshire primary arrived. The official date of the vote is yet to be determined but it is expected to be January 10. This next bit of information I found to be absolutely shocking. There are THIRTY Republican candidates running in this primary! Who are these people and where did they come from? This total number of candidates surpasses the previous record of twenty-five in 1992. Furthermore, there are thirteen Democrats in addition to Barack Obama.

Here they are:


Ron Paul of Lake Jackson, Texas, Fred Karger of Laguna Beach, Calif., Andy Martin of Chicago, Ill., Jon Huntsman of Salt Lake City, Utah, Buddy Roemer of Baton Rouge, La., Herman Cain of McDonough, Ga., Vern Wuensche of Houston, Texas, Rick Santorum of Great Falls, Va., Mark Callahan of Eugene, Ore., Mitt Romney of Belmont, Mass., Hugh Cort of Birmingham, Ala., L. John Davis, Jr. of Grand Junction, Colo., Joe Story of Jacksonville, Fla., Linden Swift of Plainfield, Ind., James A. Vestermark of Taylor Mill, Ky., Jeff Lawman of Derry, N.H., Joe Robinson of Newton, Mass., Keith Drummond of Katy, Texas, Newt Gingrich of McLean, Va., Randy Crow of Kelly, N.C., Michele Bachmann of Stillwater, Minn., Michael J. Meehan of St. Louis, Mo., Benjamin Linn of Milford, N.H., Christopher V. Hill of Prospect, Ky., Stewart J. Greenleaf of Huntingdon Valley, Pa., Gary Johnson of Canoncito, N.M., Rick Perry of Austin, Texas, Timothy Brewer of Dayton, Ohio, Kevin Rubash of Wilmette, Ill., Bear Betzler of Philadelphia, PA.


Barack Obama of Chicago, Ill., Darcy G. Richardson of Jacksonville, Fla., Aldous C. Tyler of Madison, Wis., Robert B. Jordan of Garden Grove, Calif., John D. Haywood of Durham, N.C., Bob Greene of Mountain View, Calif., Craig Freis of Lake Elsinore, Calif., John Wolfe, Jr. of Chattanooga, Tenn., Randall Terry of Purgitsville, W.V., Ed Cowan of Moretown, Vt., Cornelius Edward O'Connor of West Palm Beach, Fla., Bob Ely of Lake Forest, Ill., Edward T. O'Donnell, Jr. of Wilmington, Del., Vermin Supreme of Rockport, Mass.

I had no idea there were so many candidates. I took the liberty of looking a few of them up and they are a colorful bunch. I had begun listing some details about some of them who I found to be a bit more eccentric than others but then decided against it. If there is one thing I have learned about following the news and blogging everyday it is the fact that we are all very different and very easily offended. What I may find as comical or ridiculous, others might hold in high regard and take quite seriously. I highly recommend Googling every name above you have never heard of.

805.0 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day60.
