The Tennessee Secretary of State’s office has published the list of minor party candidates for the November election. They’re all together on a separate file from the Republican, Democratic, and independent candidates.
All but one of the candidates are nominees of the Green Party of Tennessee.
The lone Constitution Party candidate, who is running in the U.S. Senate race, must feel some affinity for his Green counterparts, though. After all, he hails from Greeneville. And their two parties joined together in the legal challenge to Tennessee’s ballot access laws.
And his name is Kermit.
