Having the support of the third-largest party in America is a massive endorsement of the freedom, prosperity, and harmony that our campaign is all about. This is a time of unprecedented crisis, calling for unprecedented solutions worthy of the 21st Century. I am prepared to lead America with all of my heart, mind, soul, and spirit. If we join together now, in this moment, we can rise from the ashes of divisiveness and create a much better world.”

The Party also endorsed Pierce’s running mate, Karla Ballard, for Vice President. “We are wholeheartedly pleased to support Karla Ballard for Vice President of the United States.
