WATCH: Would You Vote For “Literally Anybody Else?”

Before a Dallas Stars hockey game at the American Airlines Center last week, fans were met by an ordinary, eager-looking guy wearing a TCU ballcap and a shirt that read ‘Literally Anybody Else 2024′ by the steps of PNC Plaza.

His mission? Impossible. But the sentiment driving it all? Wholly relatable, sympathetic, and engaging to many voters who don’t want to see former President Trump or now President Biden win the race for the White House come November.

That guy’s name in the TCU ballcap is first name: Literally. Middle name: Anybody. Last name: Else.

He’s a 35-year-old Birdville ISD 7th grade math teacher and Army veteran who legally changed his name to ‘Literally Anybody Else’ earlier this year to run for president in the first year he’s eligible to do so.

We checked -- a Tarrant County judge signed off on the name change, though Mr. Else mentioned they weren’t amused. “This isn’t about me ‘Literally Anybody Else’ more so as it is an idea. We can do better out of 300 million people for president,” Mr. Else said. Mr. Else has already filed with the Federal Election Commission. He was at the game stumping for signatures to try and land on Texas’ November ballot as an independent presidential candidate. It’s still possible at this point but immensely difficult.

Here’s an extended interview with “Literally Anybody Else”
