Alexa knows Bill Hammons. A few months back, when Hammons was sitting around the table at Thanksgiving in Austin, Texas, chewing the fat with family, the topic turned to what Uncle Bill was doing. Addressing the Amazon device in the room, his sister asked, "Alexa, who is Bill Hammons?" Almost immediately, Alexa spit back, "Bill Hammons is the current chairman of the Unity Party of America."

He once sought swing voters in the swingiest of swing seats and ran for president of Arizona as the favorite son candidate — according to his mom, at least — but Gary Swing is trying on a different party for next year's election. After several congressional runs on the Green Party ticket and a Boiling Frog Party bid for the U.S. Senate that didn't make it to the ballot last year, Swing announced Thursday he's joining the Unity Party of Colorado and plans to run in the 1st Congressional District.

He’s also the state and national chairman of the party.
