As we all know, Kanye West announced his run for president campaign by stating,
“We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future. I am running for president of the United States! 🇺🇸 #2020VISION”.
To which he received a huge positive response from fans and others worldwide. Moreover, other competitors considered his decision and took him as a strong contender for the president’s post. As he was running for more than 50 states, he eventually missed out on 4 of them.
People were confused regarding West’s decision and thought it was a promotion act for his upcoming music album. However, the allegations were taken down after Kanye West himself calls it fake and rumoured.
What problem occurred as Kanye West was well going with the presidential campaign?
Recently as the hip-hop artist is all set to move ahead with the presidential campaign, a problem appeared. Recently a resident residing in Arizona wants to ban Kanye West. A judge has been appointed by the resident to work on the same. The person accuses Kanye West of being an election spoiler.
Moreover, according to a judge’s study, one law states that the West cannot run as an independent presidential campaign for Arizona state. However, West has previously qualified to arrive on the ballot in several states, including Arkansas, Idaho, Iowa, Tennessee, and Utah.
Thought being qualified for some states, the resident still does not believes in the fact. The resident lawyer mentioned conditions laid down in the law at a court. Independent presidential candidates can appear on Arizona’s ballot if they aren’t registered with a recognized political party and gather enough voter signatures to nominate Kanye.
However, we cannot deny the fact that Kanye has already gained more votes than needed. Hence Kanye’s lawyer has already submitted the filing at the court.
What did resident Rasean Clayton’s lawyer write?
Rasean Clayton, the lawyer, wrote, “West will not be able to qualify for the ballot in enough states to muster enough electoral votes to prevail; further he adds,
“West’s minimal interest in playing a spoiler candidate on Arizona’s ballot is not enough to outweigh the factors favouring emergency relief.”
