"Let's begin this race for the American Presidency and let's win"
Rep. Duncan Hunter this morning announced that he will be seeking the Republican nomination for President of the United States.
Hunter made the announcement in the crucial early voting state of South Carolina which he called the arsenal of democracy. "Nobody wins the nomination without winning South Carolina", he said.
Hunter is a 14 term representative from California (52nd District).
A strong anti immigration and pro military advocate, Hunter is said to have little support outside of California.
And he is joining a very extensive GOP field, with more announcements expected to come in the next few weeks. Chuck Hagel is seriously considering a bid, and Mike Huckabee is in Iowa next week in what is expected to be the precursor to a run for the nomination.
