Breaking: Hunter Campign To Have A Major Announcement UPDATES


HT to CQ via

Michelle Malkin forwards a notice from the Duncan Hunter campaign that they plan a "major announcement" later this afternoon, likely when I'll be in motion and unable to follow it. With almost no traction in any of the national or state polls, Hunter will likely announce his withdrawal from the presidential race:

Presidential Candidate and California Congressman Duncan Hunter will be making a major announcement today at 2:00 p.m. (EST), regarding the future of his Presidential bid. All media are encouraged to attend or contact Bob Bevill, National Media Coordinator, to arrange alternate interviews.
If this is true, it will be a shame, although not unexpected. Congressmen running for President usually do so for the publicity rather than any real hope of actually winning a nomination. People talk about how difficult it is to get elected President from the Senate, but I'm unaware of anyone who did it directly from the House (I assume CapQ readers will correct me in the comments with any examples).

This is merely speculation but what else could it be? If Duncan Hunter bows out, I hope he throws in with Fred Thompson.

Memeorandum has the buzzings


He ain't dropping out! He is PISSED off at being excluded from the debates...GOOD FOR HIM!!
