The GOP presidential field is much deeper than you think

There has been a lot of talk about the depth and quality of the field of candidates for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination. But, looking at this list, it’s clear we really have no idea just how deep that field really is.

Granted, few of these folks have even a snowball’s chance in H-E-Double-Hockey-Sticks of ever getting a single delegate, much less winning the GOP nomination. But, this is still a very big list of official candidates — especially when you consider that none of the “mainstream” candidates have officially filed with the Federal Elections Commission, yet.

And we know for certain this list is not complete. Dennis Michael Lynch, a regular contributor to FOX News, and a long-time voice of concern over illegal entry into the United States, has declared his intent to run for the GOP nomination, as well.
