Ron Paul officially a presidential candidate

Tim Pawlenty and Ron Paul are officially presidential candidates.

Both formed “exploratory committees” in the previous month and a half, for the purpose of exploring the possibilities of candidacy.

Both have filed for presidential candidacy in South Carolina — a requirement for participating in the first GOP primary debate of the 2012 election cycle, cohosted in Greenville, S.C., by Fox News and the South Carolina Republican Party.

And both candidates were aware that, by doing so, they have officially become presidential candidates in the eyes of the law. Spokesmen for both Pawlenty and Paul acknowledged that filing for candidacy in South Carolina changes their bosses’ status in the eyes of the Federal Election Commission.
