Kanye West’s Still In-line For Presidential Race – Just Not in 2020, But 2024
Kanye West has ended his bid for the White House, in the 2020 Presidential election, just two weeks after announcing his entry. But, he will surely meet us in 2024.
The rapper has official announced in his Instagram account that he will be running for 2024 Presidential election saying “See you at the 2024 elections.”
Steve Kramer, the election strategist hired by West, has told the Intelligencer, “He’s out. I’ll let you know what I know once I get all our stuff canceled. We had over 180 people out there today.”
According to the report, the rapper has hired 180 people working in Florida, South Carolina and other states for his Presidential campaign. West had been trying to get his name as a third-party candidate on the ballot, since last week.
Kramer added that “West’s campaign team were working over weekend there, formalizing the FEC and other things that they’ve got to do when you have a lot of corporate lawyers involved.” He also pointed out that the rapper had been receiving “overwhelming support to get him on the ballot.”

Kanye West announced that he is running for President of the United States, in the 2020 Presidential race, just 10 days before, on the July 4, Independence Day. He had decided the name of his party to be “Birthday Party,” as in his opinion, the day his party wins will be everybody’s birthday.
At the time of his announcement, he has already missed deadlines in several state ballots, but he claimed to believe that he could use the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic as a reason to be placed on those ballots, as reported by DailyMail.
He had been talking about his entry into the bid for the highest position in the country for years, but it was for the 2024 Presidential race, and not 2020. His tweet on July 4, came as a surprise for his followers.
