Update on Gay Presidential Hopeful, Fred Karger

The two main reasons I keep posting about Fred Karger is because he’s not getting an ounce of mention from the mainstream media and he’s making history as the first openly gay Republican making a bid for the Presidency.

I’m not political. I’m not a registered Republican so I couldn’t even vote in the Pennsylvania primary if he were on the ballot. But I do think it’s important to get the word out that there is someone like Fred Karger Running.

I smile when I say this. I know Fred would never do this. But I wish Fred would take my advice and put on some bright red lipstick and a pair of earrings next time he gives a speech. You can be damn sure he’d get all the attention he needs, and then some. Every single overpaid gonzo journalist, from CNN to Time Magazine, would be running with that story.

Karger Qualifies for California June 5th Ballot
1 of Only 6 Republicans in Nation’s Biggest Primary

LAGUNA BEACH, CA – The only Californian running for President this year will be on the ballot in his home state in less than five months. Fred Karger joins remaining five Republicans Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul, Rick Santorum and Buddy Roemer in battling for California’s 172 delegates.

“I am thrilled to be on my home state’s ballot. This makes six states (New Hampshire, Michigan, Maryland and North Carolina) plus Puerto Rico that have included me in their primaries this year. Next week we should find out about New York, and the fact that I am now on California’s ballot should help a great deal.” said Karger.

“The criteria are similar in all these states. It is based on ‘generally recognized presidential candidates.’ Now if Fox News, CNN, NBC and the other networks would include me in their future debates, there would be a fresh new moderate candidate among a pretty mediocre field of Republicans. Just let me in one debate.”

“It fluctuates, but about 22% of those surveyed about Romney, Gingrich, Paul and Santorum pick ‘other.’ Well, I am that ‘other’ Presidential candidate which voters just might like.”


Historic Candidacy

Karger’s candidacy and place on multiple state ballots is historic. He is the first openly gay candidate from a major party to run for President. In Karger’s first contest – last month in New Hampshire – he beat Congresswoman Michele Bachmann by 135 votes.

“I am extremely grateful to California Secretary of State Debra Bowen for including me on the ballot of the country’s most populous state. There are 37 million residents of California and 17 million voters. This sends a powerful message to the entire Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender community that you can do anything that you want to do; even run for President of the United States.”


Washington, DC and Michigan

Karger will be attending the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington, DC this week and will be in the nation’s capital from Wednesday, February 8th to Sunday, February 12th. Then, he will head to back to Michigan until that state’s February 28th Primary. There are 11 Republicans on the Michigan ballot, but 5 have dropped out.

Karger’s campaign will be based in the capital city of Lansing – located in Michigan’s 8th Congressional district. Michigan gives out delegates to whomever wins each Congressional district.

“We’re putting our emphasis on the 8th District and going to try and win there. Our new Michigan commercial will be airing next week and we have lots more planned,” concluded Karger.
