What's the Mission of the Bull Moose Party?
The mission, according to progressivebullmoose.party says:
Our mission is to return political and economic power to the American people. By raising money and running candidates under our own banner—the Progressive Bull Moose Party—we aim to end the era of big money, big corporate-controlled government—rule by the super-rich—and return power to the people.
There Was an NH Candidate from the Progressive Party
Thomas Sharpe V of Salem, NH was the Progressive Bull Moose Party candidate for U. S. Senate but did not qualify to run, according to Wiki. There is not much information about Sharpe online at all other than his affiliation with the Progressive Party. In fact, he's the only candidate that I can find online that ever ran under that affiliation. The next Senate race in NH is in November of 2022, so maybe he'll run again or maybe there will be someone else from the Progressive Party.
