American rapper turned politician, Kanye West has reportedly withdrawn from the US presidential race, less than two weeks after announcing that he would run.
It appears that the rapper’s journey to the White House has officially ended. According to a source who worked closely with him to get his name on the ballots in Florida, Kanye has decided to drop out of the race.
In an interview with Steve Kramer, who is a get-out-the-vote specialist running a firm that helps candidates get on the ballot—he confirmed that he had been hired to help Kanye get on the presidential voting ballots in both Florida and South Carolina. Kramer stated that Ye’s team was “working over the weekend formalizing things that they’ve got to do when you have a lot of corporate lawyers involved.”
Kramer then stated that things appeared to be going positively to get him the required amount of signatures to get on the ballot, saying “we had overwhelming support to get him on the ballot. They got a lot of people who they’ve got both on their volunteer side and their contracted side.”
However, just a short time later when Kramer was contacted to give a follow-up statement regarding Kanye’s progress in the race, he simply replied with “he’s out.” When asked further about the details of Kanye’s presidential end, Kramer said “I’ll let you know what I know once”
