Constitution Candidate Qualifies for Ballot

April 29th, 2010 by flanews

There will be at least five candidates on the ballot for US Senate in November. Crists departure from the primary makes three. A libertarian candidate Alex Snitker announced last week he would run. Today Bernie DeCastro filed his federal qualifying paperwork. DeCastro is running as Constitutional Party candidate. He says hes more conservative than Republican Marco Rubio.

May the best man win and I believe I have the most conservative message out there and I believe when people see it and they connect to it and if theyll open the debates on and if theyll let me into the debates then it will be on then, said DeCastro.

The Constitution Party was founded in 1992, but didnt get its name until 1999. The party has similar believes as the Libertarian Party, but is more conservative.

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.
