Max Abramson to Seek Reform Party 2020 Presidential Nomination

New Hampshire representative Max Abramson, who is currently seeking the presidential nomination of the Veterans Party of America, has stated in an email to IPR that, as of today, he is seeking the 2020 presidential nomination of the Reform Party.

Abramson, who was a major in the Civil Air Patrol, was elected to the New Hampshire State House in 2014 as a Republican.  Two years later, he did not run for re-election, instead switching to the Libertarian Party to run as the party’s nominee for governor.  He finished in third place with 4.3 percent of the vote.  He returned to the Republican Party and was elected back to his old seat in the New Hampshire State House in 2018.  Shortly thereafter, he rejoined the Libertarian Party ahead of his campaign for the party’s 2020 presidential nomination.

Abramson withdrew from the race for the Libertarian Party’s presidential nomination in March due to “abusiveness and bullying” from party members.  He announced his run for the Veterans Party of America in late April.  He hopes to bring the two parties together “under one platform of cleaning up our elections process.”

Other candidates for the Reform Party’s presidential nomination include the party’s 2016 presidential nominee and current presidential nominee of the Alliance Party, businessman Rocky De La Fuente.  Florida Reform Party chairman Joe Wendt, the former campaign representative for white nationalist Billy Roper’s 2012 bid for the Boston Tea Party’s presidential nomination, is also seeking the nomination.

The Reform Party is expected to hold its national convention in August where it will nominate a presidential ticket.  It is currently on the ballot in Florida and Mississippi.  In 2016, presidential nominee De La Fuente recorded 33,136 votes, finishing in eighth place overall.

    My understanding is that the group claiming to be the national reform party doesn’t control any ballot lines at all. The Florida party may defer to them but doesn’t have to. Mississippi, as you noted, does what it wants.

    The Reform Party of Mississippi isn’t affiliated with the national Reform Party. Claiming the Reform Party nominee would automatically get ballot access there is factually inaccurate and dishonest.

    I’m not answering questions from fake news. I have demanded an apology. Don’t make me drag IPR to court.

    If they lost ballot access in Mississippi when or how did that happen?

    Does that mean you are withdrawing from the race?

    Looking forward to a debate between Rocky, Max, and perhaps another reputable candidate. That other reputable candidate is definitely not Wendt, a complete embarrassment to the party.

    When David Duke joined the party in ’99 at least he didn’t lie about who he was. He didn’t attempt to cover up his past or mislead people.

    As I’ve said many times already, I’ve left the Libertarian Party after 25 years because of abusiveness and bullying of voter, donors, volunteers, and activists. Years of manning tables, going door to door, encouraging people to sign up or get involved only resulted in people leaving because of the treatment that they’ve been getting in the last several years from bullies who hang out in the LP.
