Kanye West is full steam ahead in his 2020 Presidential run … he just filed a second set of documents Thursday with the Federal Election Commission.
Ye’s latest filing is called a Statement of Candidacy, which shows he’s raised or spent more than $5,000 in campaign-related expenses. That elevates him to candidacy status under the federal campaign law.
Kanye, of course, lists his party as BDY — Birthday Party is now abbreviated. He designates the name of his political committee, “Kanye 2020.”
This is the second — and more important set of docs — that Kanye has filed with the FEC. He filed his first set Wednesday — a Statement of Organization for the campaign, declaring the Kanye 2020 committee will serve as the Principal Campaign Committee.
It’s interesting … some media outlets are saying Kanye is not running, but we’ve been told otherwise, and the documents underscore that. The latest was filed Thursday morning at 12:34 AM ET.
Kanye also filed legal docs qualifying him to get on the ballot in Oklahoma, however, he missed the Wednesday deadline in the battleground state of Florida.
As we reported, a market research company conducted a poll showing Kanye capturing 2% of the national vote. He ain’t gonna win, but he could be a spoiler in a close election. The question — who would he help, and who would he hurt?
