Peter Allen is the founder of the Independence Party of Florida and was a gubernatorial candidate until last Thursday when he abruptly dropped out. Apparently, Allen has reconsidered.
Peter Allen, who pulled out of the gubernatorial race on Thursday, is back in the race.
The founder of the Independence Party said this morning that he had decided to run. He filled out his paperwork and sent it off to Tallahassee.
Allen, a small-business owner, founded the Independence Party as an alternative to the two major parties. While the Independence Party of Minnesota, best known for backing Jesse Ventura, helped with some of the paperwork at the founding, the Independence Party of Florida is not affiliated with any national parties.
