Any Day But Sunday
As the political world holds its breath waiting for a final, final answer from New Jersey Governor Chris Christie on his 2012 plans, one thing is for certain: if he is going to announce his candidacy in the coming week, he won’t do it on a Sunday. Of the 10 major Republican presidential candidates to formally launch campaigns this cycle, none of them formally launched their campaign on a Sunday – though every other day of the week has been fair game. Michele Bachmann, Rick Santorum, and Tim Pawlenty each chose Monday, Jon Huntsman picked Tuesday, Newt Gingrich chose Wednesday, Mitt Romney and Gary Johnson opted for Thursday, Ron Paul picked Friday, and Herman Cain and Rick Perry chose Saturday. Back in 2007, Barack Obama also launched his presidential bid on a Saturday.
