2012 GOP Canidates

13 Jan

So I have decided to take on listing as many of the 2012 GOP candidates as possible. My only criteria is that either that have  formed a Presidential exploratory committee or the have made some sort of public statement alluding to the fact that they are considering a run. If you find one that I have missed please let me know. At this time I am not posting candidates who ONLY have speculation from media without some sort of confirmation from them or their staff. Feel free to suggest future candidates.

FYI: I took all of the pictures form the candidates official Facebook pages.

If you are connected to one of these candidates and would like a different picture used please contact me.
