Ross Perot, a billionaire business magnate who twice ran as a third-party candidate for president, has died after a battle with leukemia.
He was 89.
The self-made billionaire died at his home in Dallas on Tuesday "surrounded by his devoted family," a statement from the family said.
"In business and in life, Ross was a man of integrity and action," the statement said. "A true American patriot and a man of rare vision, principle and deep compassion, he touched the lives of countless people through his unwavering support of the military and veterans and through his charitable endeavors."
"Ross Perot will be deeply missed by all who loved him. He lived a long and honorable life," it said.
Perot was a problem-solver, an obituary posted on his website said. His philosophy was: “If not me, who? And if not now, when?”
That philosophy led him to two presidential campaigns, in 1992 and 1996, as a third-party candidate.
In the 1992 run against George H. W. Bush and Bill Clinton, he won 19.7 million votes, almost 20 percent of the popular vote. It was among the best showings by an independent presidential candidate in the 20th century...

Green Party Wins Tucson Ballot Access Case

Ballot Access News

On July 5, a state trial court in Arizona ruled that the Green Party is ballot-qualified within the city of Tucson for the 2019 election. Arizona law says that a party that wins qualified status keeps that status for two elections. Yet Tucson election officials had said they did not think the Green Party was ballot-qualified for 2019, even though the party had earned status in the 2017 city election.
The judge wrote, “The City of Tucson and its clerk abused their discretion and acted arbitrarily and capriciously by not including the Green Party as a political party qualified for the August 27, 2019 primary election ballot.”

Alaska Libertarian Party Appears to Still be Ballot-Qualified for President in 2020

Ballot Access News

The Alaska Libertarian Party lost its qualified status in November 2016 because it polled less than 3% for Governor (it got 1.91%). However, Alaska law says that a party that polled 3% for president at the last presidential election is a “Limited Political Party.” On December 9, 1987, the Alaska Attorney General ruled that the Libertarian Party is a “Limited Political Party” for the 1988 election because it had received 3.08% for President in November 1984. The fact that the LP had lost its qualified status in November 1986 because it had polled under 3% for Governor was no impediment to its presidential status.
