Political Progress the Day: Fred Karger, a retired political consultant from California, announced on his official website that he will be in DC today to officially file paperwork with the Federal Election Commission, making him the first to announce his commitment to Presidential candidacy — and the first openly gay Republican ever to do so.
This announcement follows a string of stops in key primary states and a meeting with RNC chairman Reince Priebus, which Karger referred to as “a warm meeting.”
Karger’s candidacy is sure to encounter opposition from fellow Republicans, some of whom have already pledged to keep him from making it past the March 7 presidential forum in Des Moines.

It’s a big day when Fred Karger gets some love in The Daily What.

Tim Pawlenty’s announcement about an Exploratory Committee for President. We know he is consistent about at least one thing: a dramatic soundtrack.

T-Paw doesn’t disappoint with the announcement video. Or at least his video guy doesn’t, that is. Atta boy. (thanks @kaeti)

On whether Newt Gingrich launched an exploratory committee

neightkelly said: Didn’t Gingrich also launch an exploratory committee?

» We say: Surprisingly, no. That’s what we thought too. Newt announced he was weighing support for a campaign, but didn’t formalize it. The article we linked to mentions that. This is probably a big part of the reason why a lot of people thought he bungled his announcement.

Woot: Tim Pawlenty announcing presidential exploratory committee
Great work, T-Paw. No, we’re not talking about your announcing of a presidential exploratory committee, which you’re probably going to announce on your Facebook page later today. (He’ll be the second GOPer exploring a presidency, after Herman Cain.) No. We’re talking about you allowing us to link to these videos again. If you run for president, we expect a new video, done in a similar style, once every week. You could buy Michael Bay and give him a position in your cabinet with the amount of fundraising you could garner with a move like that. source
