Hi, unless I'm mistaken, the article said he was a candidate of a notable party of a notable office. That coupled with citing reliable sources would almost certainly pass the A7 threshold, would it not? Adam9007 (talk) 18:54, 17 February 2017 (UTC)

Hi. No, I do not believe it would. The notability guidelines suggest that politicians and judges become automatically notable if they have held a significant office. The guidelines do not automatically confer notability on individuals who are merely candidates. At least that is my reading of the guideline. The article is now in draft space anyway so it can be moved to mainspace if this ever becomes appropriate. Regards Basalisk inspect damageberate 18:08, 18 February 2017 (UTC)
Okay, but significance is a lower standard than notability. Proving notability is above and beyond what's needed to survive speedy under A7. Adam9007 (talk) 18:45, 18 February 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for the advice. However, your original question asked about notability, did it not? If a subject is notable it automatically becomes significant. However, the article does not contain any claims which, if properly sourced, would confer notability. There are no claims to significance of the subject either; unsuccessful or prospective candidates in elections are often included in compilations of candidates but they generally do not need their own articles. All of this is in the guidelines if you look hard enough. Regards Basalisk inspect damageberate 11:34, 19 February 2017 (UTC)
