Pizza Politics

The presidential races will not be the only contests going on during the Super Tuesday primaries. Louisville-based Papa John's issued its own campaign announcement a few minutes ago:

Voting for candidates during the primary election won't be the last decision many Americans will make on Super Tuesday. The other? Deciding what Papa John's pizza to enjoy while watching the results roll in that night.

Domino's Pizza has also jumped into the race. Indeed, this out-of-state pizzaria chain appears ready to buy votes:

Just as the largest, simultaneous number of U.S. presidential primary elections are being held across the country, Domino's Pizza (NYSE: DPZ - News) will be e-mailing one million lucky customers an offer for a free pizza in the largest, synchronized e-mail blast in the company's history.

No word yet on whether Yum! -- another Louisville-based purveyor of fast food -- will announce a Pizza Hut platform for tomorrow.
