But confusion remains over if he is running.
An agent for West filed the essential paperwork and paid the $35,000 filing Wednesday day, which had been the deadline to get a place on the nation’s Nov. 3 presidential ballot, stated Oklahoma Board of Elections spokeswoman Misha Mohr. He had been among three separate presidential candidates to cover the filing fee before the deadline,” she added.
The filing came a day after New York Magazine’s”Intelligencer” quoted West advisor Steve Kramer saying”he is out” and imagining that the team he’d hired were frustrated.
But, TMZ reported that the West effort had filed a”Statement of Organization” Wednesday with the Federal Election Commission, saying a Kanye 2020 committee could function as principal campaign committee to get a West candidacy.
West has missed the deadline to qualify for the ballot in many states, and it is uncertain if he’s willing or capable to collect sufficient signatures necessary to qualify in other people.
West, who’s wed to reality television celebrity Kim Kardashian West, originally declared his candidacy on July 4. Days later he told Forbes magazine which he, who praised President Donald Trump and stated both discuss”dragon energy,” had been”carrying the red hat away” — a reference to Trump’s trademark red”Make America Great Again” cap.
West, who stated he was diagnosed with bipolar illness, told the magazine he planned to mimic his White House about the literary property at”Black Panther” when he won the presidency, including”Let us return to Wakanda.”
