The Florida ballot will list thirteen presidential candidates, the most ever in Florida history. The previous high had been in 2000, when there had been ten. In 2004 there had been eight.
The thirteen include the six presidential candidates who are on the ballot in states containing a majority of the electoral votes. In addition, there are three socialists (James Harris of the Socialist Workers Party, Gloria La Riva of the Party for Socialism and Liberation, and Brian Moore of the Socialist Party).
Also on are the Prohibition Party and Alan Keyes’ America’s Independent Party. Finally there are two parties organized by dissident Libertarians, the Boston Tea Party, and the Objectivist Party. Their nominees are Charles Jay and Tom Stevens.
