Augustus Invictus announced his official candidacy to become the next U.S. Senator from Florida on Monday May 18, 2015 to a crowd of supporters and press in a crowded Orlando, Florida venue. “When Augustus wins the race for U.S. Senate, he will become the youngest Senator in America and a champion for generational respect,” remarked campaign manager Thomas R. Reich.
Raised a Floridian, Invictus has a degree in philosophy from University of South Florida in Tampa and a law degree from DePaul University College of Law in Chicago. Wesley R. Howell, a CPA based in Altamonte Springs, Florida and the campaign’s Treasurer commented, “I especially applaud Augustus’s call for total accounting transparency for all Federal Candidates and appreciate that he lives by his predications.”
“A sound monetary policy; the restoration of civil rights for all Americans; and my vehement opposition to the drug war being waged by the Government against its citizens at the Federal, State, and local levels: this is the core of what drives my passion for public office,” explained US Senatorial Candidate Augustus Invictus.
Imperium, P.A., the law firm founded by Invictus, has handled and won many cases pro bono publico that involved the Federal and State Governments infringing on the civil rights of Floridians and American Citizens.
“We see our duty to the law as one involving trust, as one demanding commitment to what is right; public office involves the trust of the people and demands an even stronger commitment,” Augustus continued in a Saturday interview with an influential member of the Libertarian Party of Florida.
Invictus spoke to a group of about 200 Florida Citizens and members of the media, as the speech was streamed to a world audience. The event was held in a private room above Doc’s Streetside Grill in Orlando, Florida, a popular location for political announcements frequented by U.S. Congressman Daniel Webster, former congressional candidate Todd Long, Mayor Buddy Dyer, and other public figures.
Invictus posed questions to the members of the Federal Government:
“Do you seek to defend your countrymen against the corrupt? Or do you work hand-in-hand with the corrupt for your own advantage? Do you seek to serve your countrymen as leaders? Or do you higgle and haggle for power by debasing yourselves for a few votes more? Do you seek to protect the freedoms guaranteed by the Revolution? Or do you act as slaves to your Parties and your lobbyists in order to secure more funding for reelection?”
Wayne Jackman, Treasurer of the Libertarian Party of Orange County, said, “Augustus has one of the freshest approaches to politics I have seen in years,” Jackman continued “His commitment to generational change and independent thinking, in a new world free of lobbyists, is refreshing.”
So far, Invictus is the only announced Libertarian Candidate in Florida for the office of U.S. Senate, a seat being vacated by popular senator Marco Rubio as his run for U.S. President grows more intense.
