Maryland Libertarian Muir Boda in 2-Way Race for House

Posted by Staff at LP blog:

Libertarian Muir Boda is seizing the opportunity to advance liberty as the only candidate on the ballot challenging entrenched incumbent Republican Andy Harris in Maryland’s 1st District Congressional race.

Boda said, “Both the Democrats and Republicans are bankrupting our nation by devaluing our currency and spending astronomical amounts of money on wars, nation building and a myriad of wasteful programs. This has set up a tax and regulatory system that is oppressive and which has destroyed job creation by forcing businesses overseas.”

To remedy this, Boda is focusing his campaign on financial issues that include eliminating payroll taxes, the IRS, and the corporate income tax because, he argues, this would create prosperity for people at all income levels and boost local economies.

Boda has been traveling around the state and speaking about his Libertarian solutions on TV, radio, and in forums.

Rep. Harris, has been dodging the press and has, “decided to pull out of all debates this election season.” No doubt his claims of being a “fiscal conservative” would be laid bare in a debate with Muir Boda, who would let voters know that Harris voted for Paul Ryan’s $3.8 Trillion budget and for the Stop Gap measure to borrow and print another $1Trillion to fund the government for the rest of year.

With Boda as the only other candidate on the ballot, he aims to inform and educate voters and to give them a Libertarian choice for peace, free markets, and voluntary interaction.

    While this is a great opportunity for Boda, there is a Democrat waging a write-in candidate in this seat who has official support from the state and national parties and will probably poll far better than Boda will in November.

    What #1 said.

    I live near this district, and work in it. I hate to be the turd in the punch bowl, but Mr. Boda is facing an even worse uphill battle than most LP candidates. This district is EXTREMELY partisan on both sides, and leads Republican. Since it’s one of the only districts in the state where the Republicans have the upper hand, there’s a lot of militancy towards third party voters (whereas in other parts of the state where the Democrats are comfortable, there’s less). I definitely wish Mr. Boda well, and would be delighted if he got a lot of votes – but I’m not getting my hopes up.

    I believe there are two Democrats involved in the race. The candidate who withdrew still has her name on the ballot, plus the party is backing another Democrat who is a write-in. So it’s not a 2-person race at all. One could say it’s a 4-person race.
