Hallmark Fan Favorite, Maxine, Declares Her Candidacy for President of the United States
Maxine’s campaign is supported with new greeting cards and products
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (Sept. 14, 2012) — Maxine, Hallmark’s self-appointed “Queen of Crabbiness,” is officially declaring her bid to run for President of the United States. Neither red state nor blue state, Maxine is always in the state of telling it like she sees it and will bring that famous attitude and wit to this year’s presidential election.
“If I’m elected, I promise to tell Congress to stuff the tax code in their private sector,” declared Maxine. “I believe in life, liberty, and the pursuit of crabbiness.”
The Maxine for President Campaign provides a much needed relief from the grueling political landscape by showcasing Maxine at her crabby best with a feisty attitude as she takes a no-holds-barred approach to the world of politics.
“Whether you lean left, right, or independent, the Maxine for President Campaign cuts through the political hoopla with new greeting cards, buttons, stickers and other modes of self-expression that will let you express how you really feel about the political process in 2012,” said Jerrod Mitchell, Hallmark product manager.
Consumers can show support for Maxine by purchasing one of the 24 Maxine for President Campaign greetings cards to express how they really feel about the political process in 2012. Card prices start at $2.79 and are available nationwide today at Hallmark Gold Crown® stores, Walmart and other participating Hallmark retailers nationwide. Other products, such as t-shirts, posters and mugs are available at Zazzle.com.
Maxine will be documenting her historical bid for the oval office on her blog, MaxineForPresident.com, and on her Facebook page, Facebook.com/Maxine. To find the nearest Hallmark Gold Crown store, use the store locator on Hallmark.com.
