J.R.Myers, Chairman of the newly formed Life & Liberty Party, has announced his intentions to run for President of the United States in 2020. J.R. had sought the Constitution Party POTUS nomination in 2016. He appeared on the California American Independent Party primary ballot, winning three counties. He also came in second place in the Constitution Party of Idaho primary that year, ending up on the General Election ballot as the Vice Presidential running mate of CPID POTUS nominee, Scott Copeland.
Initially, J.R.Myers will be seeking the American Independent Party ballot line in California, the Constitution Party of Idaho ballot line and the Life and Liberty Party ballot line in Arkansas. He is also seeking ballot access and write-in status in several other states. He hopes to be on the ballot in enough states to meet the theoretical threshold of victory at 270 Electoral Votes.
