Rapper Kanye West is not giving up on his White House dream yet as he is reportedly still in the presidential race.
The rap superstar has now filed with the Federal Election Commission, according to a report from TMZ.
According to TMZ, West filed the first form required by the Federal Election Commission to run for president on Wednesday, July 15.
West filed Form 1 — the Statement of Organization — that says the Kanye 2020 committee will act as the “Principal Campaign Committee,” the report said.
The paperwork listed the party as “the Birthday Party,” the banner he said he would run under when he initially announced his intention earlier this month.
However, he’s yet to file the more important ”Form 2 , Statement of Candidacy” which shows he’s raised or spent more than $5,000 in campaign activity and triggers candidacy status under federal campaign finance law.
The developments come a day after report from Intelligencer, a New York based political magazine, said he was already bowing out of the race.
Steve Kramer, an election strategist who led West’s campaign team, is quoted by the publication to have said ‘He’s out’.
West announced his entry into the presidential arena in a July 4th tweet on independence day.
