Libertarian Candidate Scores HUGE Victory
Article from The Washington Examiner by Jack Hunter.
Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., along with Reps. Justin Amash, R-Mich., and Thomas Massie, R-Ky., are beloved by many of the millennials and others who belonged to the Ron Paul “revolution” that arose during the libertarian icon’s 2008 and 2012 Republican presidential campaigns.
Many who remain sympathetic to the enduring “ liberty movement ” that Ron Paul’s popularity produced have been eager for another leader of note to join their ranks.
On Tuesday, Glenn Jacobs—aka World Wrestling Entertainment star “ Kane ”— won a Republican primary by a razor-thin margin in his bid to become mayor of Knox County, Tennessee.
Jacobs (who, full disclosure, is a personal friend of mine) beat his closest Republican challenger by only 17 votes. There are still 43 provisional ballots to count before the victor is finalized, which might come as early as Thursday, and reports seem to strongly favor Jacobs’ chances.

I have and will vote Libertarian, especially when one is running against a RINO. I will be voting Libertarian this fall against my governor and congressman. My so-called Republican governor supported the state Obamacare plan and now is considering placing taxes on groceries because Obamacare is costing the state, and my pretend Republican congressman supported the $1.3 Trillion omnibus spending bill that failed to fund the wall but included funding for Obamacare and Planned Parenthood. RINOs need to get the message or hit the door.I can’t wait until the American public wakes up to how the GOP is playing them;
Watch those last votes like a hawk Libertarians. We would have won a congressional seat in Texas back around 1992 if the rules had been followed but the Republicans and Democrats got together, changed the rules literally at the last minute, and kept the Libertarian Party candidate from victory.
