  1. You missed Gary Johnson. He plans to announce on April 21. He will also have possibly the coolest campaign event of the year -- he's going to ski Tucks!

  2. Nice! Thanks for the heads up. I'll be sure to add it. Wonder if he'll be announcing his candidacy from atop Mt Washington?

  3. That would make a nice video. After announcing, he can pull down his goggles and literally "take the plunge" over the lip of Tukerman's Ravine.
