Roseanne Barr For President: Comedian Makes One Last Bid, But Loses Tom Arnold's Vote

Election Day is here and as America goes to the polls, comedian Roseanne Barr is giving one last push in her bid for president.

Barr announced her run for president as the nominee for the Peace and Freedom Party in August with a simple platform: “Vote for me. I’m not a liar. I’m not a thief. I’m not a whore. And I’m not a politician. I think that uniquely qualifies me to become president of the U.S.”

On Tuesday morning, Barr offered voters one last reminder.

The 56-year-old "Roseanne" star is on the ballot in California and the battleground states of Colorado and Florida, according to her website. She is a write-in candidate in the following states: Alabama, Alaska, Delaware, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Utah, Vermont, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming.

Barr said that she cannot vote for herself in her home state of Hawaii.

Another vote Barr has lost is ex-husband Tom Arnold's.

Arnold told TMZ that he is not voting for Barr on Tuesday. "I'm voting for Obama, but for God's sake let Roseanne have her pot ... she's 60," he said. She has campaigned for marijuana legalization.

Barr and her running mate, Cindy Sheehan, whose son died while serving in Iraq, sought to be a unique alternative for voters. “There is no real third party in America,” Barr told the Daily Beast in August. “There’s this one party that has two sides to it—the Democratic and Republican side. It’s one party that has two heads. We want to give voters a choice for people not owned by Wall Street.”

In July, Barr lost the Green Party nomination to Harvard-trained physician Jill Stein.
