Rick Knox, National Chairman of Prohibition Party, Dies

Ballot Access News

On July 7, 2019, Rick Knox died at the age of 70. He had been national chairman of the Prohibition Party since 2015, and lived in Blairsville, Georgia. Under his chairmanship, the party gained qualified status in Mississippi in time to appear on the 2016 ballot, the first the party had received votes in Mississippi since 1896. Also under his chairmanship, the party established social media for itself. Knox had a background as a political consultant, and many years earlier had been active in the American Independent Party when it was a nationally-organized party. Thanks to Paul Frankel for this news.
