NEW YORK - Jimmy McMillan, the Rent is too Damn High Party founder who previously ran for New York City mayor, announced that he is running in the 2016 presidential race.
McMillan, a resident of the East Village, unsuccessfully ran in 2012 as well.
When asked by News 12 why he was running, McMillan replied, "Same reason I went to Vietnam. To help straighten the mess out over there, because the enemy was coming in and we needed to try and stabilize that region."
