NY: Libertarian Candidate for Congress Running Against the Failed War on Drugs

Syracuse, NY - A Syracuse man who wants to make drugs legal jumped today into the 25th Congressional District race. Marc Romain, the former chairman of the Onondaga County Libertarian Party, filed petitions with the state Board of Elections to run as a Libertarian against incumbent Rep. Dan Maffei and Republican candidate Ann Marie Buerkle.. . .

"I’m running my campaign against the war on drugs. The whole drug war doesn’t make sense," said Romain. Romain said he filed petitions with 4206 signatures to get on the ballot for the Nov. 2 election. State law requires candidates for congress to collect 3,500 signatures. Today is the deadline for candidates running on unofficial party lines to file the petitions.
