Richard Tisei is running for the US House of Representatives - Massachusetts, 6th districtSubmitted by Randian on Mon, 10/29/2012 - 14:03
Rand Paul predicted long ago that adopting libertarian positions could help the GOP in parts of New England where they have previously not done very well. Massachusetts has not had a GOP US congressman (in either houses) for decades.
Richard Tisei supports gay marriage, opposes the Patriot Act, supports medicinal marijuana (and has said he's open to full legalization), describes himself as a libertarian, has voted against tax increases and supported tax cuts while in the state legislature.
He is polling 6-12 points ahead of his Democratic opponent, according to polls.
If you are in Massachusetts and live in his congressional district, he may be a good option.
