Presidential Candidate Has Principle, Not Party

When Minnesotans look over names of 10 presidential candidates on their Nov. 6 ballots, they may not know if labels represent a candidate’s party or his principle.

Dean Morstad, one of the 10 candidates, was not happy that he was listed as a member of the Constitutional Party.

“I actually do not belong to any party,” Morstad said. “The Minnesota ballot petition required that I list my ‘party or principle,’ so I listed the ‘principle’ of constitutional government.”

Ballots do not differentiate principle from party.
