Sorum was the independent candidate for Governor in 2012. He lost to Gov. Jack Dalrymple, however, he believes because the Governor did not have a Lt. Governor on his nominating certificate, he was not following the law and was not certified for the ballot.
Sorum says Roland Riemers, the third party candidate, was thrown off the ballot because of this infraction and the same standard should be held to the Republican and Democrat endorsed candidate.
