Diane Beall Templin (born May 23, 1947, Buffalo, New York) is an American third-party politician, who ran for President of the United States in the 1996 election, the 2004 election, and the 2008 election.

In 1978 Templin made her first run for public office when she ran unsuccessfully as an independent candidate for congress.[1] In 1982 she ran unsuccessfully as a candidate for San Marcos City Council.[1]

In 1994 Templin ran as a Republican for the California State Assembly in district 74. She lost the Republican primary receiving only 6.3% of the vote.[1] In 1994 she also ran unsuccessfully as a candidate for Escondido Union High School District.[1]

In 1996 her running mate was Gary Van Horn; that year she was on the ballot in Utah representing the Independent American Party (IAP), where she received 1,290 votes; in Colorado she represented the American Party and received 557 votes. The 2000 ticket of the American Party, Don Rogers and Albert B. "Al" Moore, promised that if elected they would nominate Templin to head the Environmental Protection Agency and to the United States Supreme Court.[2] When she ran again in 2004, her Vice Presidential nominee was Al Moore; they were not on the ballot in any state. They replaced the brief American Party ticket of Robert Boyd and Walton C. Thompson, who chose to withdraw.[3]

Templin was one of 135 candidates who ran for governor in the 2003 California gubernatorial recall election, receiving 1,067 votes. The San Diego described her as a "swing dance enthusiast." During the recall campaign, Templin appeared on a statewide PBS news program as she was dipped by a dance partner while declaring that California was "upside down." She has also run for California Attorney General in 1998 and 2002 as a candidate of the American Independent Party of California and has been a perennial candidate for Congress in California's 50th and 51st district in 2004.

She sought the 2008 American Independent Party nomination for president of the United States[4] against Don J. Grundmann and Mad Max Riekse and became the American Party candidate with Linda Patterson as her running mate.[5]


Templin was married to Robert James Templin, who died on December 26, 2006 at the age of 81.[6]
