Libertarian U.S. Senate Candidate and Airline Pilot Makes Statement on Ninth Anniversary of 9/11
ATLANTA, GA - Chuck Donovan, candidate for U.S. Senator from the state of Georgia, issued the following statement on the anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001:
"Like most Americans, I took the attacks of 9/11 very hard. As a professional pilot, I took them personally. We pilots had been trained with a plan to deal with hijackers; a plan we were told included team members outside of our cockpits. September 11, 2001 showed us we were disarmed and alone.
WASHINGTON - Looking toward the 9/12 Tea Party events in Washington, DC, Libertarian Party executive director Wes Benedict issued the following warning to Tea Partiers: "Republicans are trying to fool you again."
"There are two kinds of Tea Partiers," said Benedict. "One kind is so blinded by its hatred of Obama and Democrats that it cannot see fault with Republicans. It's the other kind the Libertarian Party is reaching out to."
KTVK-3TV in Phoenix has scheduled a debate that will include all four of Arizona's ballot-qualified U.S. Senate candidates: John McCain, Rodney Glassman, Jerry Joslyn and myself. It will run without commercial interruption from 6pm to 7pm on Sunday, Sept. 26. This is most likely the only debate that McCain will agree to participate in. If all goes well, the debate will significantly increase awareness of my campaign and could boost my standing in any polls that are taken.
The Libertarian Party is America's third largest political party, founded in 1971. Our vision is for a world in which all individuals can freely exercise the natural right of sole dominion over their own lives, liberty and property by building a political party that elects Libertarians to public office, and moving public policy in a libertarian direction.
