Socialist Workers Party to Announce a Presidential Ticket on the Weekend of June 23-24

The Socialist Workers Party will announce its national ticket on the weekend of June 23-24. The party has already filed for James Harris for president in Colorado, but he may just be a stand-in. UPDATE: the original post said the dates would be June 9-10, but that was incorrect and has been corrected.

The Socialist Workers Party is one of only two minor parties that has had a presidential nominee in every presidential election since the end of World War II. The Prohibition Party is the other such party. At one time or another, the Socialist Workers Party has placed its presidential nominee on the ballot at least once in all but twelve states. The most populous of the twelve states in which it has never had its nominee on the ballot is Georgia. During the 1970’s, the Socialist Workers Party filed more constitutional ballot access cases than any other party. Five times, its election law cases have received full opinions in the U.S. Supreme Court. The party won two of them (Ohio and Illinois) and lost the other three (Georgia, Washington, and Texas).
