Alliance Party Announce Presidential Ticket, Nominating Convention

4:00 PM - 6:30 PM EDT

Greetings Friends and Allies,

We are especially pleased to announce that we are convening the delegates of the several states for the purpose of the possible nomination of a presidential ticket.  This is a significant accomplishment for a party as young as we are.

Due to the health crisis that we are all engaged in this will be done virtually online. You are invited to observe this convention on YouTube.  Shortly after 3:30 PM EDT on April 25th you will receive an email with the live link.

In accordance with our by-laws, the National Committee has called this convention and delegated a Convention Committee to develop the rules. After speeches and presentation of the candidates, following a motion to nominate, each state delegate present will cast a yea or nay vote on the motion.  A majority of 50% plus one will carry the motion to nominate. Each state affiliate will cast one vote while protocol state affiliates will cast two, as per the by-laws.

Acclaimed reformer and author Greg Orman will deliver the keynote.

The national ticket being presented is:

"RockyDe La Fuente (born October 10, 1954) is an American businessman and political reformer. He was the nominee of both the Reform Party and his self-created American Delta Party for President of the United States in the 2016 election.. That year he was also an unsuccessful candidate for the Democratic presidential primary.

Vice President:
Darcy G. Richardson (born December 6, 1955) is an American author, historian and political activist.
He was the Reform Party of Florida's nominee for governor in 2018. In the 2012 presidential election, Richardson challenged incumbent Barack Obama for the Democratic nomination for president of the United States in five state primaries.

Well, good for the Alliance Party! Will Mr. De La Fuente's running in the GOP primary in many states create any problems a la "sore loser" laws? I know it shouldn't but it has in the past.

Rocky has become an self-educated expert on ballot election law. I was on a phone call with him where he noted that he avoided "sore loser" states this year.

Andy said...

I know that Rocky did get on the 2020 Republican primary ballot in at least one state that has sore loser law, and that is Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania is the 5th most populated state, so not being able to be on the ballot there in the general election will really hurt his vote total.

There may be others where he won't be able to appear on the ballot.

I thought he was on in Michigan as well. That's the state that excluded Gary Johnson in 2012.
