Cornel West has switched party affiliation and is now running to be the Green Party’s 2024 presidential nominee. The author, civil rights activist and professor of philosophy announced earlier this month he would run as a candidate with the People’s Party. West confirmed the news on “The Katie Halper Show.”

Cornel West: “Which means when it comes to infrastructure and institution, it’s much broader and deeper, access to the ballot much broader. But in the end, as you know, any candidacy to run the empire in order to dismantle the empire has to be part of a movement.”
