Socialist Equality Party Names National Ticket

Published on February 13, 2012, by in General.

On February 13, the Socialist Equality Party announced that it will run Jerry White for President, and Phyllis Scherrer for Vice-President. See this release from the party. This is the fourth ticket by a party with “Socialist” or “Socialism” in its name so far in 2012. The others are the Socialist Party, the Party for Socialism and Liberation, and the Freedom Socialist Party.

The Socialist Equality Party was founded by people who had originally established the Workers League. The Workers League first ran candidates for public office in 1974, but didn’t run its first presidential candidate until 1984.

The Socialist Workers Party, which has run a presidential candidate in every election starting in 1948, still has not nominated a national ticket. Thanks to Bill Van Allen for the link.

    Duh. Democratic = Socialist — since 1930 or earlier.

    Any idea on ballot access for the SEP or other small socialist parties?
