On May 17, Americans Elect announced that it will not nominate anyone for President this year. The announcement came at 5 p.m. eastern time. Here is the text of the press release, courtesy of Talking Points Memo.

The last sentence makes it clear that Americans Elect is in no way disbanding itself. Americans Elect leaders feel their party will be active in future elections. There are about twelve states in which the party will be on the ballot automatically in 2014, even if it has no nominees for any office in 2012. Also Americans Elect, at least for now, expects to continue petitioning in Texas and Idaho, the two states where the drive is quite far along, but isn’t finished.
