UFC Fighter Chris Lytle Considering Run for State Office in 2012Submitted by Liberty_Mike on Thu, 07/14/2011 - 17:57
Looks like libertarian minded MMA fighter Chris Lytle is considering running for Indian State Senate in 2012. For those of you who don't remember, in 2010 he gave a shout out to Peter Schiff in his post fight victory speech asking the people of Connecticut to vote for him.
"As a fireman, he’s put out fires, and as a mixed martial artist he’s put out lights. Now UFC welterweight veteran Chris “Lights Out” Lytle is considering a 2012 run for the Indiana State Senate in District 28 or Indiana’s State House in District 53.
“I'm thinking about running because I feel we need new faces in there with the right intentions,” said Lytle in a press release issued Thursday. “My main concern is helping make Indiana a good economic environment for us and our children. I want to see if a normal blue-collar worker can make a difference.""
