(TheConservativeNews.org) – Rapper and fashion designer Kanye West’s involvement in this year’s presidential race was one of the more unexpected facets of the 2020 election narrative. Having announced his intention to run on Independence Day, he ended up on the ballot in 12 states, claiming a total of around 60,000 votes.
On Wednesday, November 4, West conceded defeat via Twitter. His one-word message appeared to suggest he would throw his hat in the ring again in 2024.
West ran on a platform of mostly conservative values, including opposition to abortion, promotion of the Christian faith, and biblical education. However, he also opposed capital punishment and favored reform of criminal sentencing and drug laws.
Some commentators speculated Kanye West might have taken some of the African-American vote away from Joe Biden. Others explored the possibility that the rapper’s staunchly religious background could have cost Donald Trump some Christian voters. However, it appears as though West did not make much of an impact one way or the other.
