Kanye West Still Has Not Filed Any Necessary Paperwork To Actually Run For President

Pitchfork reports that despite claiming on Twitter over the weekend that he is running for President in this year’s election, Kanye West has not filed paperwork with the Federal Elections Commission to actually do so.

He has also already missed filing deadlines in Indiana, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, and Texas, meaning he won’t be on the ballot in those states. North Carolina and Texas are both critical swing states. Deadlines in several other states, including key swing states like Michigan and Florida, are coming up in the next few days, and it doesn’t appear as if West is doing any of the work necessary to get on the ballot in those states.

At this point, it appears as though Kanye’s announcement is more of a publicity stunt and less an actual, serious run for President.
