The Michigan Republican Party has put real effort into keeping Gary Johnson off the ballot in that state, even as they have downsized their effort to defeat President Obama in Michigan. The Michigan Libertarian Party has qualified a full slate of candidates for Congress from Michigan, including Scotty Boman for Senate along with candidates in all 14 Congressional Districts.
Scotty Boman has been involved in The Libertarian Party for years and has run as a Libertarian candidate every two years since 1994, when he first ran for State Representative. In 1994 he headed the statewide petition drive which qualified The Libertarian Party for the Michigan ballot.
In recent years, he was the LP candidate for Lt Governor in 2006, and in 2008 he ran for U.S. Senate.
He prepared for his 2008 campaign by becoming very active in the Ron Paul for President campaign that year. As the LP candidate for Senate in 2008 he received more than 76,000 votes, and gained real visibility for the Michigan LP.
This year Scotty Boman was again active in the Ron Paul for President campaign, and he is again running an active campaign for U.S. Senate on the Libertarian ticket. His campaign theme is Peace, Liberty and Prosperity.
Scotty Boman is calling for a non-interventionist foreign policy, an end to undeclared wars, bringing the troops home from Iraq and Afghanistan, and closing foreign military bases. He pairs that with a call for domestic peace by ending the War on Drugs. His views on other domestic issues reflect his commitment to personal liberty and the free market.
