From Jeffrey Carson via email. Carson was the Libertarian Party nominee for U.S. House in Virginia’s 8th district in 2014:
I’m writing to pass along a new op-ed in USA Today that I co-authored alongside five other congressional candidates from 2014. In it, we call upon the next wave of pragmatic, next generation leaders to run for Congress in 2016 and pick up where we left off in challenging the partisan gridlock and special interest corruption in Washington.
Please read and share our op-ed with your friends.
The six of us –– two Republicans, two Democrats, a Libertarian, and an Independent –– have joined forces to support a new initiative launching today called Run for America, which seeks to elect a diverse slate of a dozen solutions-oriented candidates to the U.S. House in the next election. These candidates would run on a common, future-focused platform and, upon their election, form a coalition within Congress to advance their agenda with the help of a national grassroots network of supporters.
Our campaign may have ended four months ago, but our cause of a stronger republic endures. I look forward to sharing other developments with you soon. As always, please feel free to be in touch if I can ever be helpful or if you’d like to get more involved.
Thanks to Bruce Majors for this news.
