Kanye West who loves teasing his fans and the rest of the world with his "someday to be the President" plan has yet again suspended his Presidential campaign in less than two weeks after making the announcement.
Soon after the announcement on 4th of July 2020, Kanye won two endorsements; ok those were from his close friend Elon Musk and his wife Kim Kardashian West.
The announcement became a butt of a joke and idea of Kim Kardashian being the first lady was favorite topic for meme machines.
Once Kanye declared his party’s name as Birthday party, the idea of his run for the office didn’t seem serious.
And now the reports are coming Kanye West has suspended his campaign much like Sanders, Warren, Bloomberg and you can keep counting, one difference is Kanye can still rap. And he is a legit billionaire, second highest paid celebrity.
As reported on Fox News: a "get-out-the-vote specialist" named Steve Kramer claims West is already "out" after the Yeezy founder hired both "paid and volunteer" staff to help him secure signatures in Florida and South Carolina to get him on the ballot.
Kramer claimed West's team was "working over weekend there, formalizing the FEC and other things that they’ve got to do when you have a lot of corporate lawyers involved.”
The specialist claimed there was "overwhelming support" to get West on the ballot.
A separate source, who remained anonymous, claimed to the outlet that they were hired for $5,000 to help West gather signatures in Florida to meet the state's July 15 ballot deadline. The outlet claimed he needed "132,781 valid signatures from Florida voters in less than a week."
Intelligencer writer Ben Jacobs wrote on Tuesday that he reached out to West's publicist for confirmation on his recent efforts, when the musician's team suddenly "went dark."
There had been theories that Kanye’s run could have largely helped President Trump as he could have divided the black votes that was predominantly going to Joe Biden, and if it didn’t you know they ain’t black.
