"Rocky" De La Fuente wins Alliance Party presidential nomination; Darcy Richardson on ticket as VP following online convention

SAN DIEGO, April 25, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The Alliance Party, the national organizational arm of a political reform movement, with affiliates in two dozen states, announces that its delegates voted today to nominate Roque "Rocky" De La Fuente as their presidential candidate and Darcy Richardson as his vice presidential running mate.

The ticket was chosen in what is believed to be the nation's first online presidential nomination convention today. "Now, the real work begins," declared De La Fuente in his acceptance speech. "Our priorities are clear: To make significant strides in our mission to fundamentally change the governing structure in this nation, we must continue to unite with all other small parties to become the powerhouse of change this nation needs to break the two-party monopoly."

Since 2016, De La Fuente, 65, the son of immigrants, has energetically involved himself in efforts to bring about political change in America. The San Diego resident and longtime American entrepreneur, businessman and political reformer was the nominee of both the Reform Party and his American Delta Party for president of the United States in the 2016 election. That year, he was also an unsuccessful candidate for the Democratic presidential primary. He also ran for the U.S. Senate in 2018 in nine states simultaneously.

"The Constitution has been ruthlessly abused, illegally manipulated, plainly ignored and regularly misused to gain partisan political advantage," De La Fuente said. "We must convince America that we are the change agents that can bring an end to government corruption, stagnation and partisan politics. We must convince America that we can bring back American values and emphasize the importance of integrity and honor. We must convince America that we are a new political party with a modern, fiscally responsible, common sense, nonpartisan, problem solving agenda. We must convince America that we will provide a new kind of politician ? a term limited, transparent public servant who puts country before party and solutions before ideology."

Richardson, 65, is an American author, historian and political activist. He was the Reform Party of Florida's nominee for governor in 2018. In the 2012 presidential election, Richardson challenged incumbent Barack Obama for the Democratic nomination for president in five state primaries.

The Alliance Party is the political arm of a nationwide movement to elect public servants who will end corruption, stagnation and partisan politics. It is time to bring back American values and emphasize the importance of integrity and honor. Its members believe that if we want to be the example for the rest of the world to emulate, we must achieve success by leading our nation towards better outcomes in combating the human challenges we all hold in common: climate change, poverty, ignorance, healthcare, income inequality, and injustice. We must earn the credibility to lead through superior achievement, because no one wants to emulate a loser. America must truly outperform global standards if we want to be the gold medal winner of nations.

The Alliance Party and its candidates, believe that we should put our national efforts towards excelling in the critical areas that determine quality of life for Americans, our global communities, and our planet itself. This requires that at a national level we have a unified vision of what success looks like, as well as unity of effort to achieve our objectives. We believe we must immediately set our sights on winning the gold in the critical areas of climate change, providing quality and affordable healthcare, and educating the future generations of Americans to successfully compete on the world stage. These tasks should begin immediately. Today. Without regard for partisan politics, ideological constraints, or historical limitations.
