Kanye West Reportedly Drops Out Of 2020 Presidential Race

Kanye West is reportedly "out" of the Presidential Race after making a late attempt to be added to the ballot in Florida.

Well, that was short-lived.

Two weeks ago, Kanye West announced that he would be running to become President of the United States in 2020. Unveiling his campaign goals, West preached an anti-vaccination and anti-abortion stance, which divided his fanbase even further. He was already too late to run in six states and, with the deadline rapidly approaching in several others, West made a last-ditch effort to get his name added to the ballot in Florida and South Carolina. Apparently, it all ended up being too much for him because, according to Intelligencer, he decided to bow out gracefully.

Getting their information from multiple campaign professionals, Intelligencer reported that Kanye had taken steps to have his name included on the ballot as a third-party candidate. The outlet had learned from somebody on Ye's team that they would be spending time in Florida to get the required number of signatures to be added to the ballot. That would have meant 132,781 signatures in less than a week to hit the July 15 deadline.

Steve Kramer, who was hired by Kanye's team to assist him in being added to the voting card, said that the rapper was "working over [the] weekend [in Florida], formalizing the FEC." However, it looks like the plan was just too overwhelming because, according to Kramer, Kanye is now out of the race.

"He’s out," he said. "I’ll let you know what I know once I get all our stuff canceled. We had over 180 people out there today."

Kramer added that West's newly-hired team was upset about the end of his campaign, stating that the mix of volunteers and paid workers were looking forward to his run.

"I have nothing good or bad to say about Kanye," added Kramer. "Everyone has their personal decision about why they make decisions. Running for president has to be one of the hardest things for someone to actually contemplate at that level."

He didn't drop out because he was never in it. It was a publicity stunt for an upcoming album or to help Trump in some way. Not sure the reason, but he definitely wasn't running. He would have had it announced months ago if he had any intent, not a week before the deadline to register.

More than half of these comments are people they've praised Ye production and album creativity over the years. But because of political reasons people turn on him lol. It's like being a fan of Kaperdick but because of his political views people stopped liking him.

He won't in 2024, at least not within a week or whatever. And I might vote for the brother, unless Yang steps back in.

This man was never in the race to begin with. But there are some idiots out there who endorsed him and would have actually voted for him.
