He ran for office in 2018. 

In 2018, he ran for California’s 22nd Congressional District against Andrew Janz and Devin Nunes.

What is the American Solidarity Party?

The American Solidarity Party still does not have ballot access in many states, as it was created in 2011. Carroll said that he discovered the party after "poking around the internet for two weeks."

While the party does not define itself to be "explicitly religious," its principles are based on Catholic social-teac. Many people affiliated with the party are pro-life and aim to curtail abortion rights. 

What does Brian T. Carroll stand for? 

Carroll has voted Republican ever since 1980 because he opposes abortion rights and euthanasia. "I don't want it to be Trump's pro-life movement," he said. "I want it to be Christ's pro-life movement." One of the greatest parts about running for President, to him, is having the opportunity to meet other Catholics. 

However, in 2016, he briefly joined the Democratic Party. Some of his beliefs are conservative, while others could be considered left. Before joining the American Solidarity Party, he supported Bernie Sanders. 

He opposes Donald Trump. 

In a Skype interview, a reporter asked Carroll why he thinks pro-life supporters shouldn’t vote for Donald Trump in this upcoming election. “One thing that he hasn’t done is treated individuals with respect,” he responded, and then went on to criticize Trump’s border wall. “When he separates families at the borders, that to me is not pro-life.”

He is "somewhat active" on social media. 

His Twitter account is run by the Solidarity Committee to Elect Brian Carroll. With a mere 2,393 followers, his standing in this election is pretty clear.

His Instagram has yet to receive the verified blue check, as he has only 235 followers.
