"I am here today because I see everybody, except me, in all the newspapers. All report 'five' presidential hopefuls. I came here to find out, what happened? I submitted my forms, and nobody (reported it), I'm a quiet guy. I don't have much supporters, it's OK. But I'm still one of the aspiring presidential hopefuls. At least, you must report the truth."
