Feb. 18 named 'Almost Presidents Day' to honor POTUS runners-up who didn't make the cut

Nashville, TN - The descendants of several historic runner-ups in Presidential elections have petitioned the U.S. Board of U.S. Holidays to name Tuesday, February 18th, "Almost Presidents Day."

Charles Cotesworth Pinckney IV told reporters, "We feel that these candidates are important figures in our history and deserve to be recognized for almost being the leader of our nation. They tried really hard and it's the right thing to do."

In response, the board has created what they are deeming a "participation holiday" on February 18 to celebrate the efforts of the runners-up who tried but didn't make the cut to be POTUS.

It is reported, but not confirmed, that all government and state employees will be given a 1/4 day off to recognize the attempts of past candidates, such as Charles Cotesworth Pinckney, DeWitt Clinton, Rufus King, Wendell Willkie, Hillary Clinton, and so many more.
