Rapper Kanye West has failed to make the ballot in Missouri, the latest in a string of failures for presidential campaign.
West has missed ket filing deadlines and suffered ballot rejections in Ohio, Illinois, Wisconsin, West Virginia and Montana last week, according to a report from Forbes. Missouri Secretary of State John Ashcroft said West only turned in 6,557 valid signatures out of the 10,000 required to make the state ballot. West is running as an Independent.
According to Forbes, West will be on the ballot in at least 5 states: Iowa, Arkansas, Colorado, Oklahoma and Vermont.
“West has no mathematical chance at winning the 270 electoral votes necessary to become president because he missed the filing deadline in key states,” Forbes reports.
A recent Forbes interview revealed that West can’t logistically win in 2020, raising suspicions that he’s running a “spoiler campaign intended to hurt Democratic nominee Joe Biden.”
