Sick of the Democratic and Republican parties? This MO Senate candidate wants a new one .

Jared Young has to collect 10,000 signatures if he wants to get on the ballot as an independent candidate for U.S. Senate in Missouri. That’s the same number of signatures that it takes to get a slate of candidates for a political party onto the ballot.
So Young, a former businessman running for Senate, decided to combine the two. On Wednesday, he announced the creation of a new political party: The Better Party.
“There are tons of obstacles for independents to run a successful race,” Young said. “And one of the first obstacles is they have to take their limited resources and spend a huge chunk of them just getting on the ballot. And so I’m looking to eliminate that first big obstacle for independents. So they can focus from the beginning, on just getting their message out to voters.”
