Sarkozy announces candidacy

If all goes as expected, French Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy will announce his candidacy to become the UMP presidential candidate. In doing so he will likely attempt to steal some of the media coverage that has centered on Socialist candidate Ségolène Royal since her strong victory in the Socialist primary. In the US candidates campaign for months if not years before their party's nomination, whereas Sarkozy will have just 1-2 months before he is likely chosen.
