Alan Keyes Enters The Race

Conservative radio host and political commentator Alan Keyes has announced he will join the GOP field for President. Keyes has already run for President twice in 2000 and 1996. He also has a couple of failed Senate runs including one in Illinois where he ran against Barack Obama in 2004. During that race Keyes said that Jesus Christ would not vote for Obama because of some of his views. He also refused to congratulate Obama for his victory saying, “I’m supposed to make a call that represents the congratulations toward the triumph of that which I believe ultimately stands for … a culture evil enough to destroy the very soul and heart of my country? I can’t do this. And I will not make a false gesture.” Last Friday Keyes filed a Statement of Candidacy (Form 2) with the Federal Election Commission which makes it official. He has already signed on to debate with the rest of the Republicans tonight at the Values Voter Presidential Debate in Florida. Keyes doesn’t expect to jump out into the front of the pack like Thompson, but he does expect to make some noises at the debates, something he is very good at. He already has a website, and a following.
