About Those Keyes Votes

I mentioned the morning after the Iowa caucuses that I couldn’t find any votes for Alan Keyes included in the official tallies, wondering if this was the latest manifestation of his view that running for president is just a state of mind. But Keyes supporters are now protesting that the Iowa Republican Party has neither counted nor reported votes for their candidate, even though we know Tom Tancredo received 5 votes despite having dropped out. Keyes ran third in Iowa in 2000, receiving 14 percent of the vote, and ran sixth there in 1996 with 7 percent.

Apparently Keyes’s name wasn’t included in various official candidates’ lists or reporting instructions. That means we won’t know the vote totals for Keyes or other lovable eccentrics like John Cox until the folks at the Iowa GOP have combed through the paper ballots. Stay tuned.
