Here's why the orange candidate
will win the White House:
1. Jack's got guts.
2. With a last name like O'Lantern,
Jack's got the Irish vote.
3. All power stems from the people --
this is a squash-roots campaign.
4. Jack be-leaves in limited government.
5. Why not a vegetable?
One candidate is wooden and the other is a bush.
6. Jack can carve out a plurality of the vote.
7. Jack won't con-seed defeat.
8. A big, bald, empty head with a goofy grin
can get elected -- right Minnesota?
9. The experts may not give him a chance --
but they don't know Jack!
Jack kicked off his campaign August 12 with an appearance in the Highland Fest Kiddie Parade (St. Paul, MN), where he met T.C., mascot of the Minnesota Twins baseball team.
JACK SEEKS SNOOPY'S ENDORSEMENT
As a tribute to cartoonist Charles Schultz, who grew up in the city, 100 creatively decorated Snoopys are on display in St. Paul through September. Here, Jack pays a visit to Sailor Snooy at the historic Highland water tower. The 127 foot tower is at the corner of Snelling Ave. and Ford Parkway, which just happens to be a Downing Farm pumpkin selling spot. The St. Paul water utility typically holds an open house at the tower the second weekend of October, so that people can climb the 151 steps to the observation deck and view the fall colors.
Jack leads a Kiddie Parade at a St. Paul block party September 10.
Lacking the financial resources of the major party candidates, Jack is hitting the streets, knocking on doors, and meeting the voters one-by-one.
