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.

Please note: The postings of "G. Morris", written by John K. Bush and which end in 2016, stated his views as of the dates of posting and should not be understood as current assertions of his views. The postings, which have not been altered since they came to an end, remain on this blog to preserve the historical record. In 2017, Mr. Bush took a position that precludes further public political comments or endorsements. He will no longer be contributing to this blog.
