Editor’s note: This article has been submitted by a candidate seeking the Libertarian Party nomination through the primary system. The Michigan Libertarian provides equal access to any Libertarian Party of Michigan member who is seeking the nomination through this process without endorsing one candidate over another.
I plan to run a big money campaign for Congress. I will match all donations dollar-for-dollar up to $100,000.
I chose the 11th Congressional District because it will be easiest. In 2016 the incumbent Republican won with only 53% of the vote. He is not running for reelection.
I needed 1,000 valid signatures to get on the ballot. I submitted over 1,400 signatures. The Bureau of Elections certified my petitions and listed me as a candidate.
Already five Democrats and six Republicans have started campaigning. Their battle in the primary will weaken the two survivors’ ability to win in November.
With your help, this is a winnable campaign. I can be the first Libertarian Party candidate elected to Congress. Again, I will match all donations dollar-for-dollar up to $100,000.
