As the 2016 presidential campaign ramps up, people from multiple political parties are entering the field to become the next President of the United States. In fact, more than 500 people have filed a statement of candidacy. Each election season typically sees dozens, if not hundreds, of people who declare their candidacy for president, most of whom have no realistic chance of winning.
CBSNews is reporting that Steven Wayne Covington is the 512th person to file a statement of candidacy. Other names on the list include Sara H. Paylin, Brystol S. Palyn, and an independent from Iowa named Deez Nuts.
Just when you think it couldn’t get any worse, WKYT in Lexington, KY reports that Limberbutt McCubbins, a Democrat cat, plans to improve space exploration and environmental protection.
In all, 80 people have declared as Democrats, 127 as Republicans, 135 independents and 12 libertarians. Fifteen people claimed to have no party affiliation.
