Just because President Barack Obama and former Gov. Mitt Romney capture all the headlines doesn’t mean they’re the only candidates on the Nov. 6 ballot in the race for the White House.
In Florida, 10 other contenders have their names on ballot, each hoping for enough votes to win the state – or at least pull off a respectable showing. These candidates represent a number of third parties, each with their own distinct agendas.
Here’s a look at who else you’ll see on the Nov. 6 ballot:
- Thomas Robert Stevens, Objectivist Party
- Gary Johnson, Libertarian Party
- Virgil H. Goode Jr., Constitution Party
- Jill Stein, Green Party
- Andre Barnett, Reform Party
- Roseanne Barr, Peace and Freedom Party
- Tom Hoefling, American Independent Party
- Ross C. "Rocky" Anderson, Justice Party
- Stewart Alexander, Socialist Party USA
- Peta Lindsay,
Party for Socialism and Liberation
Imagine, if you will, that Barack Obama and Mitt Romney pulled out of the race and you couldn't vote for them.
