Libertarian Candidate Launches Election Campaign For Ohio's U.S. Senate Seat
Libertarian Party candidate John McAlister of Columbus/Gahanna will be announcing his candidacy for the U.S. Senate on January 5th during a 12 o'clock (noon) news conference to be held at the Franklin County Board of Elections. McAlister will be joined by Nick Hogan, a Gahanna City Councilman who is running as the LP's candidate for the 12th Congressional District; Scott Smith, the LP's candidate for the 15th U.S. House District; and other Libertarian state & local candidates.
McAlister has been a Republican for 30 years but became frustrated with the Republican's lip service to small government. "People who want a smaller, less intrusive, less complex, less costly federal government are not seeing it from efforts of the Republicans or Democrats," says McAlister. McAlister goes on to say, "Sixty-four percent of voting-age Americans chose not to vote in 1998. It's because they have no choice. What the country needs is a two party system. Right now we only have a choice of candidates from the 'Tax & Spend Status Quo Party.'"
McAlister has set up a web page to promote his candidacy at www.JohnForUSSenate.com. The site allows the media and voters to view biographical information, stands on issues and information that supports McAlister's Libertarian views. McAlister for US Senate, his campaign committee, plans on running radio spots to advertise the website in upcoming months.
McAlister, the former Central Region Chair of the Libertarian Party of Ohio, says, "People who want a choice between business-as-usual politics in Washington and new ideas will have a real choice this year."
