    Is this a conservative district? Pro-Life / Pro man+women? Is it moderate, libertarian, or liberal? Are there R’s and D’s running as well? Or, is this just CP against Indy?

  2. Mike Kane

    Good news, as I’ve heard from many people in LP leadership in that area that he needs opposed .

    This is a conservative district and one with only Republicans opposing Ball (5-way GOP primary to come). The report is misleading because while Putney is the incumbent, he is retiring. He was conservative and caucused with the GOP, and even became acting speaker of the house one session when the GOP speaker, Vance Wilkins, had to step down due to ethics violations (paying a former staffer to keep quiet about sexual advances).

    Also I’ve seen way too many 3rd party state legislative candidates make this kind of statement: “In order to leave a lasting legacy for our children and grandchildren, we must stop the overreach of the federal government.” That may very well be true, but in ones capacity as a delegate, how do you propose to do that? Secession? Hopefully he knows what he’s running for.

    So I assume his main issues would be to ban all abortions and close the border. Lower taxes and banning gay marriage. He would say people in this district should have a rifle too. These are probably the five main issues he’ll be running on. Just guessing.

    Obviously none of the posters here know Joshua Fauver.

    He is a practical-minded and sincere constitutionalist that is no nutjob or extremist, and would do a better job for the political office that he currently seeks, then those of the major parties.

    Nullification.
