Noted Libertarian civil rights activist Gregory Creswell will be running, unopposed, in Michigan LP’s first-ever primary election on August 8. He is running in a special election for state rep in the first district, which includes part of Detroit, and will be the first candidate of any alternative party in the state to appear in a primary election since 1998.
He will face a Democrat in a two-way race this fall.
Libertarians achieved primary ballot status because of Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson’s Michigan vote count in 2016.
Creswell is running to repeal the state’s no-fault auto insurance law, cut income taxes, and support constitutional-carry gun rights.
