Richard Winger of Ballot Access News is currently reporting on a rumor, which he received from an Americans Elect insider, that Jon Huntsman and Evan Bayh will form a presidential ticket to run with the American Elect ticket. IPR has confirmed this rumor with a source from inside the former Jon Huntsman campaign.
According to a source within Americans Elect, Jon Huntsman will seek the Americans Elect presidential nomination, and Evan Bayh is willing to be his running mate. Huntsman was Governor of Utah 2004-2008. Bayh was Indiana Governor 1988-1996, and U.S. Senator 1998-2010. Huntsman and Bayh have not told Americans Elect leaders that they will seek the nomination.
Americans Elect is expecting to be on all fifty state ballots in November and they hold their nominating primary through an “online caucus” on their website.
