U.S. Representative, District 4, Mississippi
Election Date: July 7, 2009
About the Candidate:
The great state of Mississippi is proud to announce our candidate for the 2010 Congressional elections. Kenneth "Tim" Hampton is going to run for the Congressional seat in District 4 of Mississippi. The seat is currently held by four-time District 4 incumbent (and District 5 incumbent before that from 1989-2003) Gene Taylor (D). District 4 is in South Mississippi and includes the large cities of Hattiesburg (The University of Southern Mississippi, and William Carey University), Laurel, Biloxi, and Gulfport.
Tim is a lifelong resident of Hattiesburg and staunch supporter of libertarian principles. Even though he's only been a formal member of the Libertarian Party for a few years, he's been a philosophical libertarian for most of his life. He believes that the government has become broken and that the only reliable way to fix it is to elect brand-new people to Congress who aren't in the pockets of special interest groups and Washington lobbyists. Tim supports a restoration of the Constitution's importance from the top-down in our government. He also advocates government, education, and tax reform.
Tim is up against a difficult battle against the 20-year incumbent Congressman Taylor, but a battle that can be won. He needs the help of the national, state, and local Libertarian parties and grassroots organizations.
