Phil Anderson, President of the Libertarian Party of Dane County and a lifelong resident of Wisconsin, has declared his candidacy for the United States Senate, representing Wisconsin. The election will take place in November 2016. His official statement reads:
“I am officially declaring my candidacy for US Senate. We need change in Washington D.C. and in all government. We need representatives who are not beholden to corrupt political parties; parties whose only interest is perpetuating their power. We need representatives who are more concerned about the peace, prosperity and privacy of their constituents than personal prestige and re-election.
We need representatives who will speak the truth, no matter what. We need representatives who have faith in people, acting freely and humanely, not in institutions that have inevitably become corrupt.
I will serve you by tirelessly fighting for what we all need and want- peace, prosperity and privacy. I will serve you by telling you the truth, the whole truth. I will serve you by honoring you, and the things that we all have in common, not our differences. I ask for your support. “
