Snitker Congratulates Rand Paul For Primary Win
Alexander Snitker, the Libertarian U.S. Senate candidate in Florida, congratulated Rand Paul for his primary victory in the Kentucky Congressional race yesterday. Paul, whose smaller government, more individual liberty platform closely mirrors the Libertarian philosophy, overcame challenges from the Washington establishment and strong resistance from within the Republican Party.
“Rand’s victory shows us that voters are rejecting party politics in favor of the best candidate,” said Snitker Wednesday, “Specifically the candidates that will fight for Constitutional government and individual liberty.”
While major party spokespeople and pundits are trying to spin the outcome, Snitker considers Paul’s victory as sign of the tea party movement’s influence in this election cycle. “The Democrats are trying to spin this as typical mid-term, anti-incumbent sentiment. The Republicans are trying to spin this as anti-Obama sentiment,” said Snitker. “The real truth is the American people are voting to defend themselves from an overpowering federal government created by career politicians in both parties.”
It may be unorthodox for Libertarian to voice support for a Republican, but Snitker has consistently urged Americans to vote for the best candidate, regardless of party affiliation. “Rand Paul is, without question, the best candidate in this race.” said Snitker, “It doesn’t matter whether there’s a D’, ‘R’, or ‘L’ next to his name.”
