Kanye West is running for President

West first announced a Presidential campaign and soon after rumours of his withdrawal started circulating the internet. But nope, Yeezy is still in the race. The rap superstar filed with the Federal Election Commission, according to a report from TMZ. West filed Form 1 – the Statement of Organisation – that says the Kanye 2020 committee will act as the “Principal Campaign Committee,” the report said. The paperwork listed the party as “the Birthday Party,” the banner he said he would run under when he initially announced his intention earlier this month. The report noted that he had yet to file Form 2 – Statement of Candidacy – that confirms that he’s raised or spent more than $5,000 in campaign activities, which triggers his candidacy status under federal campaign laws.
