He was disqualified from the Republican primary schedule on 12th June 2018 due to an insufficient number of signatures.

His request was later denied by a federal judge.

Raiklin Campaign to raise awareness on veteran suicide

Raiklin Campaign

Ivan organized a campaign in 2017 to raise awareness of the rising rate of veterans committing suicide. He said the awareness campaign is to give back to the military, especially the Green Beret and Special Operations communities, of which he is a part, “by raising awareness of one of the big issues that a lot of people don’t want to talk about … post-traumatic stress and traumatic brain injury and things that lead to the veterans’ suicide.” 

He ran 22 miles each day through every county/city in Virginia and covered a total of 1776 miles. 

“I’m doing an awareness campaign for the 22 veterans that die by suicide daily,” Rocklin said. “Each mile represents one of our lost brothers and sisters.”
