[Updated with video] Dozens of political candidates made their way to the Seventh-Day Adventist Church on King Street this morning [Nov 29] for Nomination Day, with Independent Kim Swan first at the door.

Both the Progressive Labour Party and One Bermuda Alliance walked to the Church together, with their candidates decked out in their respective party colours. The Premier arrived in the PLP-themed mini-van along with some of the other PLP candidates.

Anthony Richardson arrived, confirming that he will replace Makai Dickerson as the PLP’s candidate in C#12.

The already declared Independent candidates showed up, as well as additional Independents including Albari Assalaam, Gershwyn ‘Shiloh’ Smith, Leyoni Junos, Cornell Fubler  and David W. Burch

    Let's not be sexist :) I'm a PLP supporter but lawdamercy Jeff Baron is sooooo fine he could make me a believer. Unfortunately for him I'm not in #21.

    Oh puuullleeeze...did they have to turn it into something looking like a BIU protest march?

    Second thought, maybe that was appropriate. The PLP is not known for promoting freethinking among its members. It is 'do as I say, put your hand up when told to or suffer the consequences.'

She makes me want to leave town and move up west just so I can see that face on my ballot. Theres no way shes single though. The Premier isnt getting my vote and sorry to say oba, but Glens not my type.

    Glen, Come Correct? Surely you mean PLP's Glen Blakeney? Or am I forgetting some other Glen running for OBA. I am known to make mistakes. I recently thought Alexis Swan was debating Larry Scott, when she was actually debating Lawrence Scott. Apologies to both, especially since Lawrence is my cousin. Comes from not having a television, cos I didn't see the actual debate. I would have known the difference then.

    I wasn't the first to point it out, but I think it's telling that, while the PLP team wore party pins, the OBA sported COUNTRY pins. That says a lot about each party's priorities, I think.
