David Earl Williams III

David Earl Williams III is an independent write-in candidate for Congress in Illinois’ 9th district who is affiliated with the Libertarian Party of Illinois. He published the following press release earlier today:

Dear Fellow American, 

It’s been awhile since the last press release, so I wanted to check back in with all my supporters and constituents of Illinois 9th.

Williams for Congress has been very busy with getting the word out from door knocking, literature drops, yard signs distribution and setting up potential future debates.

I apologize if I’ve kept you all waiting. 

To start off, I wanted to tell you about some of my friends who are running for political office across the country.

Joseph Kopsick, Independent running for Illinois Congressional 10th district and Political Science Major who desires to reduce the size of the federal workforce,
cap spending at lower levels, wants to push for Balanced budget amendment, Pro-2nd amendment and Anti-Federal Reserve.

Alex Merced, Libertarian running for the U.S. Senate in New York against Democratic Incumbent Chuck Schumer, Republican challenger Wendy Long, and Green Party candidate Robin Laverne Wilson. Merced previously worked for Greico Financial Training Institute, currently Web chair of the Brooklyn Libertarian party, Co-Media Chair of the Manhattan Libertarian party, and owner and founder of Merliva LLC.

Merissa Hamilton, Tea partier turned Libertarian who is running for the U.S. Senate in Arizona against Republican Incumbent John McCain (who is facing a fierce primary against his challenger State Senator Kelli Ward) and Democratic challenger Congresswoman from Arizona 1st district Ann Kirkpatrick. Hamilton is the founder of the Pro-life Libertarian Party Council, she has combated waste in the food industry, helped victims of domestic violence and crisis pregnancy.

I personally endorse these three, as they’re not career politicians looking to make a quick buck at the expense of the tax payer.

They’re People, like you and I who are fed up with the status quo – the future of America who will actually follow the Constitution and be the hard hitters we need.

Last but not least, my open invitation to those of you who can make it, thisSaturday at 2 PM – 3:30 PM on August 20th, 2016, the Illinois Center Right Coalition (ICRC) will be holding a Candidate’s Meet & Greet at Niles Public Library 6960 W. Oakton St, Niles, Illinois 60714

Various other candidates such as Libertarian Senatorial Candidate Kent McMillenand myself, will be giving speeches and speaking to the voters directly on the issues that matter.

Please let your family and friends know as well.

I hope you can make it, and looking forward to seeing you all there.

    Wow, big news!

    Oh yeah, Gary Johnson raised $1.8 million today.

    I mean, in the world of IPR I know that’s not as big of a deal as this write-in candidate endorsing some people. But still interesting.

    David has raised over $90,000 in his current campaign so far, which would likely put him in the top 0.1% of third party (non-presidential) candidates in terms of fundraising. He’s raised almost as much as his establishment Republican opponent.

    David ran in the GOP primary in the same district in 2014 and received 14,148 votes (47.6%) against a candidate who the GOP immediately disavowed due to her strange views. David’s campaign was covered by , among others, WeAreChange (over 16k views) and, two days after the primary, The Young Turks (over 60k views):



    David is going to run under the Libertarian Party banner in 2018, either for Congress (11,000 signatures IIIRC) again or state legislature. He is 100% committed to making the ballot then.

    David is also exploring the potentiality of even bigger plans involving the Libertarian Party in 2020.

    I hope he sits on most of that cash then. He’ll need it in 2018, and it’s not likely to accomplish much this year, considering the circumstances.
