HELENA, Mont. (AP) – Presidential candidate Roque “Rocky” De La Fuente says he has a plan to torpedo both Hillary Clinton’s and Donald Trump’s bid for the White House.
The 62-year-old Reform Party and American Delta Party candidate was in Helena on Friday to explain his “Rockies Strategy.”
It involves unlikely electoral math, nonexistent candidate cooperation and a lot of luck.
De La Fuente says if third-party candidates win all of the Rocky Mountain West, then neither major-party candidate would have enough electoral votes to win. The decision would go to the U.S. House of Representatives, where anything could happen.
He says he is ready to cede some states to other third-party candidates, but he is gunning for Montana, Nevada and Alaska.
He says the plan may be a long shot, but long shots come in once in a while.
