Despite being over a year away, Election 2012 is already ramping into high gear. Naturally, President Obama will run for a second term, although Randall Terry, a pro-life activist from New York, will challenge him for the Democratic nomination. For those interested in other potential challengers, here is a list of Republicans who have announced their intention to run for their party's nomination:
Fred Karger, political consultant and California gay rights activist
Andy Martin, perennial political candidate from Illinois
Jimmy McMillan, candidate from New York
Tim Pawlenty, former governor of Minnesota
Mitt Romney, former governor of Massachusetts
Other presidential prospies who have not yet announced their official candidacy include Newt Gingrich, Mike Huckabee, Michele Bachmann, Sarah Palin, Rudy Giuliani and oh-so-serious candidate Donald Trump. 2012 could be a very interesting year for American politics.
