Firstly, Happy Labor Day! The traditional end of the summer means both that I will be back in school on Wednesday and that the Presidential Race will soon swing into high gear. As with my last weekend vacation, there are a couple points that need to be addressed:
- Fred Thompson will be entering the race (via video) this Thursday – the day after the New Hampshire debate.
- As I just mentioned, the Republican candidates will participate in a Sep. 5 debate in NH
- Romney has re-taken the lead in Michigan, which moves him into third place in delegate votes
Now that we are getting into the fall, the easy part of the Presidential Race is over. People are actually starting to pay attention now, and everything counts mistakes, as well as victories, will be bigger and are more likely to have a lasting impact. Expect to see the competition get tighter as the weeks go on, also expect to see the lower-tier candidates start to drop out as funds start to dry up.
