Meet the Candidates

Posted by on September 21, 2012

Today, in my weekly reader there were two pages on candidates. The pages caught my eye and I decided to do a post on the candidates and who they are.

Here are a few facts about the first candidate in the election, Barack Obama. Barack Obama was born on August 4, 1961, in Honolulu, Hawaii. He married Michelle Obama. He has been married to her since 1992. One of his favorite hobbies is playing basketball. His favorite foods are chili, french fries, and pork chops. Here are a few facts about the second candidate, Mitt Romney. Mitt Romney was born on March 12, 1947. His birthplace was Detroit Michigan. He married Ann Romney. He has been married to her since 1969. One of his favorite hobbies is horseback riding. His favorite foods are meat loaf, pretzels, and peanut M&M’s. Here are two similarities between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama. They both have some children. Also, they both like reading. Here are two differences between the candidates. Obama is a democrat and Mitt Romney is a republican. Also, Obama likes playing basketball but Mitt Romney doesn’t.

    Good job. Please remember to capitalize and italicize the name of a magazine such as Weekly Reader. (I can’t do it in a comment is why I didn’t italicize)
