In New Mexico, Adam Kokesh is running for Congress in New Mexico's 3rd district without any seeming political party affiliation.
In the State of Florida, Alexander Snitker, is running for the U.S. Senate and is decidedly without any party affiliation.
In the State of Illinois Alton Franklin is an independent candidate for U.S. Senate.
In the State of Texas, Bruce West, a Libertarian candidate, is running for Congress in the 8th district.
Larry Bill, from the State of Missouri is running as an independent for Congress in that 8th district.
Also in that district in the State of Missouri, Bob Parker, listed simply as a "conservative Congressional candidate", is running against Republican
incumbent Jo An Emerson.
For Governor, several Libertarian candidates are campaigning for this office in several states:
In Arizona, Bruce Olsen and Mike Ross, both Libertarians are running for Governor in 2010.
In the State of California, Dale F. Ogden runs as the Libertarian Candidate.
In Florida, John Wayne Smith, runs as the Libertarian candidate for Lt. Governor.
In the State of Georgia, John Monds runs for Governor as the Libertarian Candidate.
In Illinois, it is Lex Green who is the Libertarian candidate for Governor.
Susan Gaztanaga is the Libertarian candidate for Governor in Maryland.
Felix Raymond Montez is running for Lt. Governor as a Libertarian in the state of Minnesota.
In the State of New Hampshire, Thomas "Thom" Simmons is the Libertarian for Governor.
And in the State of Texas there are five, count them five, Libertarians running for Governor, among them the most notable being, Jeffery Joseph
"Jeff" Daiell, Kenneth "Ken" Griffin and Steven S. "Steve" Nichols.
Also in the State of California, apparently not running under any party affiliation but seems to have strong ties with the Constitutional Party, is
Chelene Nightingale running for Governor as well.
Dan Reale of Connecticut is a Libertarian Candidate running for Congress
Dan Kairis of the Green Party is running for the 14 district of Illinois for Congress, and while I failed to find any more Green Party candidates, I
only did a cursory Google check.
The Peace and Freedom Parties website does not list any candidates running for office in 2010 but does warn of an ominous proposition on the ballot in
California known as "The Top Two Candidates Open Primary Proposition" that seeks to place all candidates on the same ballot to vote on so that they
can then be reduced to the two candidates with the highest vote to run for the primary election.
There are more candidates out there I am sure, but it takes more research than I have the time to do at this moment and will attempt to do more as
time goes on and continue to post in this thread to list them here.
Thanks S.G. for a great thread and an important medium in which to bring forth these candidates and allow members to see which ones might be running
in their states.
