Libertarian tosses name into the ring for governor of Wisconsin

MADISON, Wisc. (Heartland Newsfeed) — A former Libertarian candidate for U.S. Senate in 2016 is tossing his name into consideration for governor of Wisconsin.

Phillip Anderson kicked off his campaign for governor this past weekend at the state capitol this past weekend.

Anderson says that as a Libertarian, he’s more interested in empowering people, not power over them.

“We, as libertarians, believe in people’s and communities’ rights to make their own decisions. There’s nothing more far, more humane, more accountable and transparent. I can’t believe that Democrats and Republicans still use the word accountable and transparent in their campaign speeches, and that people still believe them. But this is a way we can be more accountable and transparent than they are,” said Anderson.

Anderson’s pick for lieutenant governor, Patrick Baird, was present at the announcement.
