Per outgoing party chairman Kelly Gneiting, on November 7, 2015 at their national convention, the Independent American Party nominated Farley Anderson of Utah for President of the United States. Mr. Anderson is the author of a number of books, and wrote a proposed 28th amendment to the U.S. Constitution
, which all IAP candidates must agree to, as per the party’s bylaws. Gneiting says of the document: “It is incredibly inspired, and something that would, in fact, fix our country.”
The Independent American Party currently has ballot access in New Mexico, Oregon, and Utah. Mr. Anderson has yet to select a running mate.
Also at the convention, Will Christensen was selected to be the party’s new national chairman. Christensen was the party’s presidential candidate in 2012.
