American Political Party
The Reform Party of the United States of America (RPUSA), generally known as the Reform Party USA or the Reform Party, is a political party in the United States which was founded in 1995 by billionaire Presidential Candidate Ross Perot. Perot said Americans were disillusioned with corrupt and ineffective politicians, and desired a viable alternative to the Republican and Democratic parties. The party has nominated a wide variety of candidates over the years, among them Perot, former senior Presidential advisor Pat Buchanan, and consumer advocate Ralph Nader.
The party's most significant victory was the election of Jesse Ventura as Governor of Minnesota in 1998. Since then, the party has been torn by infighting.
