The New Independent Presidential Candidate from Iowa Has Been Unveiled
The 2016 Presidential election is still more than a year away but in recent days a new name from Iowa has popped up.
The candidate is from Wallingford, Iowa a town of 197 people in extreme northwest Iowa. They officially filed as a candidate with the Federal Election Commission on July 26th. Their address is listed as 2248 450th Avenue.
According to Public Policy Polling earlier today, one in ten voters in North Carolina would vote for this candidate over Republican front-runner Donald Trump and Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton. So what's the candidate's name? Are you ready? He was registered as "Deez Nuts." Yep. And we can now report that his actual name is Brady Olson. He lives on a farm, but there's one problem. He's only 15. So why did he file as a candidate? He told The Daily Beast, "“When I heard about the Limberbutt McCubbins story, I realized I could." Limbertbutt is a Kentucky cat, yep a feline, running for the Democratic nomination. Maybe if Limberbutt is 35 in human years he can run, but Brady certainly can't.
Olson is the son of a dental assistant & a farmer. The address he listed on his candidacy paperwork doesn't exist. However, 2250 450th Avenue in Wallingford is home to Brady's dad's (Mark) business, Olson Land & Livestock. He'll be a sophomore this fall in the Graettinger Terril Ruthven Ayrshire Community School District. Funny as it is, this 15-year old youngster from Iowa was trending on Twitter today. Well, "Deez Nuts" was anyway. Don't count this Olson kid out as U.S. President... in 2036.
