Kanye West has taken his first official step on his road to The White House — he’s filed with the Federal Election Commission … seeking the office of President.
Kanye filed the first form required by the FEC Wednesday — Form 1, Statement of Organization — declaring that the Kanye 2020 committee will serve as the “Principal Campaign Committee” with West as its candidate. The party is listed as BDY … which Ye’s said stands for the Birthday Party.
Regardless, the move comes on the heels of reports that Kanye was dropping out just 10 days after making his surprise July 4 Twitter announcement … and after news broke that he was polling at just 2 percent.
Looks like he’s trying to keep hope alive … at least for now.
Kanye, who’s had Elon Musk‘s support from the jump, has managed to stir up plenty of publicity — and controversy — in his less than 2 weeks on the campaign trail so far.
As we reported … he turned on his former buddyand incumbent, Donald Trump, compared Planned Parenthood to a Satanic baby-killing cult and got blasted by the org, and picked a running mate with some odd takes on mental health.
Ye’s still facing an uphill battle to even get on the ballot in several states, and as we already mentioned … his first poll numbers really sucked.
Our sources have also told us Kanye’s in the throes of a very serious bipolar episode through all of this, which has worried his family and loved ones.
