他只在部分州的初選列入選票,可能由於南卡羅來納州選票資格費價格較高,令他在該州“南方第一”選區成為唯一少數候選人[15]

  15. Greenberg, Eric. Long-shot candidates look beyond New Hampshire. MSNBC. NBC Universal. February 14, 2016 [May 30, 2016]. Despite his larger reach, De La Fuente shares one thing in common with his fellow New Hampshire long shots: None of them will appear on a ballot in South Carolina’s “First in the South” primaries on February 20 and 27, where the cost is far more prohibitive than last Tuesday’s $1,000 entry fee. The lone South Carolina curiosity will be Willie Wilson, a self-made Chicago businessman, who will appear on the Democratic ballot along with Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and Martin O’Malley. As in New Hampshire, the former Maryland governor’s name will remain on the ballot despite having suspended his campaign after the Iowa caucuses. Wilson previously finished third in the 2015 Chicago mayoral race, and he is the longtime host of the Windy City’s television gospel music show “Singsation.” Reached by phone in South Carolina yesterday, Wilson said, “I’ll be happy if I get 20 percent or so of the delegates … I’m hoping I can win it.” Wilson, who recalls going from mopping floors at McDonald’s to owning five franchises of his own, knows the road ahead will be difficult. “I believe anything is possible, but I come on this journey to work hard and have faith.”
