The Unity Party grew out of a grassroots group which supported a United States Presidential campaign by raising campaign contributions and awareness of our platform. From there, Unity Party of America candidates ran for the Federal office in 2008, and again in 2010. By this time, the Unity Party had expanded beyond Colorado for a total of 27 states. Over the last decade, we have continued to expand across the country.
On June 6, 2017, the Unity Party of Colorado achieved full party status in the Centennial State thanks to the number of voters who had checked the “Unity” voter affiliation box. With this new status, Unity Party of Colorado candidates (including Presidential candidates), no longer have to petition onto the General Election ballot, but instead are nominated at the election year Unity Party convention. In 2018, Hammons, his Gubernatorial running mate and friend Eric Bodenstab, and other candidates went on to shatter all new-party records in that year’s General Election.
