Third Party & Independents Archives

And the Candidates Are...

Three-hundred, fifty? Two sixty-seven? One three five?

It’s a number that has been difficult to pin down, and will probably continue to move slightly throughout the news media until an authoritative reporter can compile a complete list from the election bureaucracy in California. That will probably take a week or so given the national attention to this recall/election. I was able to get a list for WatchBlog with 135 names on it and broke it down into party affilliations and listed everything alphabetical. There isn’t much more to say about any of these candidates that hasn’t been said so far, so this will just be an informational breakdown of the certified candidates (the number is expected to rise slightly, of course). Of note is that the third largest party is actually no party; they have registered as independents (little “i”). Angelyne (of L.A. billboard fame), Gary Coleman (“What-chu talkin’ ‘bout Willis?”), Leo Gallagher (if you are in the first row of his campaign rally, bring a plastic rain-coat) and Arianna Huffington (co-host with Bill Maher) are all running as independents.

The complete list (with contact information and ubiquitous websites) can be downloaded in PDF format from the California Secretary of State website.
