Kanye West Continues Presidential Journey, Petitions To Get On New Jersey Ballot
Kanye West doesn’t appear to be allowing what’s going on in his personal life to stop him from pursuing his presidential dreams. The ‘Stronger’ rapper has recently filed to appear on New Jersey’s voting ballot for the upcoming presidential election. According to reports, Kanye West submitted a total of 1,327 signatures (only 800 were required) to the state Division of Elections, in order to be an official independent presidential candidate in the State of New Jersey.
Kanye West also had to turn in signatures in order to be considered for the ballot in Illinois as well. However, it’s now being said that those signatures are under review. According to reports, three objections were filed against Kanye West with the Illinois Board of Elections which means the validity of the submitted signatures on his petition must be checked. A decision on if Kanye West will be allowed to stay on the ballot in Illinois should be announced sometime next week. The Yeezy owner seems to be aiming to get on as many state ballots as possible before Election Day this November. According to sources close to the rapper, he has hired a team of political advisors to best help guide him throughout this task.
Besides his potential political career, Kanye West has also been in the headlines recently for comments he made towards his wife Kim Kardashian. As we previously reported, Kanye West trended after tweeting many concerning messages, including accusing his wife of trying to have him committed and wanting a divorce from her.
Following his multiple Twitter rants, Kim Kardashian finally spoke out and asked for the public to be understanding of Kanye’s mental space during this time.
Following her statement, she was spotted in Wyoming with her husband allegedly trying to work things out. According to reports, the visit didn’t go too well, however, and Kim was seen crying in a car to Kanye as the couple talked.
