Obama to Launch Campaign Next Week

The President is preparing to launch his re-election bid, as expected. This comes without surprise, but will also leave him well in front time-wise of other candidates. So far on the Republican side, only Tim Pawlenty has opened his campaign.

Obama is planning on announcing his bid online.

The most likely day for the campaign to file registration papers with the Federal Election Commission is Monday, but officials are not committing to a specific date in case some transcendent event in the world would overshadow the kickoff. Obama aides want to tell their supporters first, and so are not encouraging preview stories by the press.
The president’s announcement will be transmitted directly to supporters through text messages, email and social media, not with an appearance by Obama, the sources said.

Maybe a surprise of him not doing so? Let's hope so.
