Crowded Ballot

April 21st, 2010 by flanews

The US Senate ballot is getting crowed. As Governor Charlie Crist eyes running as a No Party Affiliation candidate, a new name is entering the race.

Alex Snitker, a 34 year old salesman from St. Petersburg announced his candidacy today in Tallahassee. Snitker is running as a Libertarian. His platform; less government of course.

I am running on a constitutionally limited federal government. The first thing Id like to do is abolish the IRS and replace it with a consumption-based tax system, so that no American would pay taxes below the poverty level. The second thing will be term limits. No politician deserves to be in Washington for 30 or 40 years. They need to go up there, make the laws, and come home and live by the laws which theyve made, said Snitker.

Snitker hopes to raise two million dollars. If Crist decides to run as an independent then there could be four choices on the November ballot.
