Four of the five announced candidates for the Peace and Freedom Party nomination for President have been nominated by other parties. These affiliations are noted for identification only. Clicking on a candidate’s name takes you to her or his page on this site.
The State Central Committee has not taken a position for or against any of the candidates in the Presidential primary. Candidates are listed in alphabetical order.
- Stewart Alexander, nominee of the Socialist Party U.S.A. – candidate’s website
- Ross C. “Rocky” Anderson, nominee of the Justice Party — candidate website
- Roseanne Barr – candidate website
- Stephen Durham, nominee of the Freedom Socialist Party — candidate website
- Peta Lindsay, nominee of the Party for Socialism and Liberation — candidate website
Secretary of State Debra Bowen refused to put Peta Lindsay’s name on our primary election ballot because she is not 35 years old. The Peace and Freedom Party joined with Lindsay and her supporters to challenge this decision in court, but lost at the trial court level. The decision is being appealed.
Roseanne Barr, who announced that she is a candidate for the Peace and Freedom Party nomination on July 19, did not participate in the June 5 primary.
The results of the primary are not binding on the nominating convention, which will be held on August 4 and 5 in Southern California. Delegates to the convention will be the new members of the county central committees elected at the same time (see this page).
