    Some states have "sore loser" laws prohibiting someone from getting their name printed on the ballot for any party if they previously ran and lost in that state's primary/caucus. However, in practice most of these have not been applied to presidential primaries. There are two exceptions, South Dakota and Texas.  A person losing the Republican presidential primary in Texas would not be allowed to have their name printed as the Libertarian candidate for that same general election.
