At least two people with links to Kanye West's nascent presidential campaign are also active in Republican Party politics.

One of West's electors in the state of Vermont will also be a delegate to the Republican National Convention in Charlotte. Chuck Wilton, one of the three electors West's presidential campaign named in a filing submitted with the Vermont secretary of State on Monday, was also elected by the Vermont Republican Party in May to serve as a delegate for President Trump at this year's RNC.

Asked by Intelligencer if he was the same person who was listed as a delegate, Wilton replied, "Yup, that would be me." He said that he had been involved in politics in Vermont for years, and had been connected to the West campaign "through political contacts."
