A Florida man has legally changed his name to a website URL while running for Congress.
Born Eddie Gonzalez, the man now legally named VoteforEddie.com, had the change made in January and Florida has now agreed to change his name on the upcoming ballot.
VoteforEddie.com is currently running as an Independent congressional candidate, and says he made the change as a way to get his message across.
“Since I’m not under the wings or good graces of both political parties, I had to find a different way to get my message out there,” he recently told the Huffington Post.
He has reportedly raised about $2,400 for “Eddie for Congress” while his competitor, U.S. Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-Miami) has raised roughly $608,400.
(Former) Eddie was born to Cuban immigrant parents in 1980 and says he is studying for a degree in business.
The ballot, which will likely include VoteforEddie.com’s name, was scheduled to be finalized this week.
