First GOP Presidental Candidate of the 2012 Race

Gary Johnson, former 2-term governor of New Mexico, has announced his bid for the Office of President of the United States. This makes him the first declared real candidate of the Republican Party. The others currently are doing either “exploratory committees” or publicity seeking events (with the exception of Sarah Palin). Here’s the story from The Union Leader via Drudge Report. This should start to pressure the other to make their announcements soon of whether they will be in or out of the race. I will be keeping an eye on this story.
