AZ: Editorial Backs Libertarian Hess in Run for Governor

From the Arizona Republic:

Of all the offices for which Libertarian Barry Hess previously has campaigned, this race for governor, this year, would seem to be his time. National sentiments seem to be blowing strongly in the direction of Libertarian ideals. Fast-growing national debt, the prospect of higher taxes, exponentially greater federal regulatory controls over private enterprises like health care and finance - voter concern about all these issues and others would seem to play to the hand of advocates of the free market. Advocates such as Libertarians.

Will the campaign favor the hands-off party this time as Hess campaigns for governor? Polls suggest no. But certainly in the Libertarian primary contest, Hess stands out among the contenders. The Arizona Republic supports Barry Hess as the Libertarian Party nominee for governor.
