Daniel Lewis on Monday announces his Libertarian candidacy for the United States Senate from Tennessee.
The Tennessee Division of Elections has verified (in a letter dated march 3) that Mr. Lewis will be placed on the Nov. 4 ballot.
On Saturday, the Libertarian Party of Tennessee officially selected him as their candidate for United States Senate at their annual convention held in Nashville.
Mr. Lewis is currently serving as the chairman of the Libertarian Party of Metropolitan Nashville and Davidson County.
He ran for the Tennessee House in 2004.
He said he is seeking the office "to offer the voters an alternative to those that will be offered by the Republican Party and Democratic Party."
He supports reducing the size, scope and power of government at all levels and on all issues, and opposes increasing the size, scope or power of government at any level or for any purpose.
