Deadline For Filing In The Florida Primary Is October 31st

Some more fire-stoking by CNN:
Possible presidential hopefuls like former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie may have more on their minds than trick-or-treaters and costumes this Halloween.

The date usually associated with candy-seeking children this year also marks the deadline to file to get on the Florida Republican primary ballot, likely to be held on January 31, 2012. It is the first of many deadlines candidates must meet in order to appear on the ballots in various state presidential primary contests.
While Palin and Christie are not going to run (mark my words), I have to admit that it would be insanely interesting for (either of) them to throw their metaphorical hats into the ring.

...and on all Hallow's Eve to boot! What a circus that would be.
