Oops. Donald Trump and Mike Pence are not on the Minnesota state ballot, leaving the state GOP in “total confusion.” Tuesday was Minnesota’s deadline for non-major party candidates to file the paperwork required to get on its ballot. But that’s not all.

Non-majority candidates have to submit a petition with 2,000 signatures to make the cut. The Minnesota Secretary of State‘s website shows that Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine are on the ballot, KARE11 reported. Libertarians Gary Johnson and William Weld show up, as well as Jill Stein and Howie Hawkins with the Green Party.

Then, there are quite a few other candidates with an interesting assortment of party affiliations:

  • Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine, Democratic-Farmer-Labor
  • Darrell Castle and Scott Bradley, Constitution Party
  • Dan R. Vacek and Mark Elworth, Jr., Legal Marijuana Now
  • Alyson Kennedy and Osborne Hart, Socialist Workers Party
  • Jill Stein and Howie Hawkins, Green Party (Note: Party working to replace stand-in VP candidate Hawkins with endorsed candidate Ajamu Baraka.
  • “Rocky” Roque De La Fuente and Michael Steinberg, American Delta Party
  • Evan McMullin and Nathan Johnson, Independence
  • Gary Johnson and William Weld, Libertarian Party

But where are Donald Trump and Mike Pence?

It seems, the Minnesota Republican Party still hasn’t filed its paperwork to put the would-be GOP president and vice president on the ballot. With the state deadline for major party candidates to file mere days away on August 29th, the Republicans have their work cut out for them. That is, if they want the Trump combo on their state ballot.

How could such a big omission occur? Trump has little to no on-the-ground support as part of his low-budget campaign. A 12-year-old boy with loads of enthusiasm and little real-life experience, mans one of his offices in Colorado. The Republican Party has picked up the slack in Trump’s nontraditional race, but things inevitably fall through the big cracks in his campaign.

As we speak, the Minnesota ballot looks like this:

The chair of each of the major political parties has to certify the names of people nominated as presidential electors and ten people nominated as alternate presidential electors. These are nominated by the delegate conventions, and they are presented under the supervision of the parties’ of the state’s central committees.

The state GOP has dissolved into total confusion:

What a surprising turn of events. This should be interesting.
