Kanye West Listed As VP Candidate On California Ballot
Kanye West’s race for president continues to get more perplexing.
The rapper and head of state hopeful will not be listed on the ballots in California, but as president. Instead, he’ll be listed as a candidate for Vice President for the American Independent Party (AIP), according to reports. That party’s presidential candidate is Roque “Rocky” De La Fuenta Guerra, who owns De La Fuenta car dealerships. He previously ran for president as a Democrat before going the Independent route in 2016.
It’s not clear why Kanye West is on the ballot as a VP candidate when he’s been going strong for his own race for president.
Most recently, it was reported that he spent $3 million to get on ballots in multiple states.
An insider from Let the Voters Decide told TMZ that Kanye West has paid the company anywhere from $3.5 million to $4.5 million to help get enough signatures in 15 states. Unfortunately for West, it hasn’t been completely profitable for him.
He reportedly paid $1 million to get 93,000 signatures in Arizona, $325,000 for Ohio and $300,000 for Virginia, but won’t be on the ballot in any of those states. Still, his name will appear on the ballot for 12 states like Kentucky. He reportedly spent $400,000 to get enough signatures for that state. He’ll also be on the ballot in Iowa, where he reportedly paid $80,000 for help getting signatures.
He previously discussed his campaign and said he’d be running for the new Birthday Party
“Because when we win, it’s everybody’s birthday.”
He also said he would’ve run as a Republican if Donald Trump wasn’t already.
