Tom McMillin for US congress to replace retiring Mike RogersSubmitted by ron_paul_is_awesome on Sun, 04/27/2014 - 17:45
He just qualified for the ballot in the past week or two after collecting the required number of signatures. McMillin was orginally not planning to run, but when Mike Rogers made the announcement that he was retiring at the end of his term McMillin decided to seize the opportunity. So his campaign is still getting off the ground, but has a website up and you can check out his stance on some issues here:
He looks really good on stuff like NSA surveillance, government transparency, being a true small government conservative. I don't know much about his foreign policy but I heard he is pretty good on that too, I'll try to dig up a link. Also he has spoken out against the drug war and introduced a bill requiring transparency on SWAT raids (currently serves in the Michigan House of Representatives, 45th district).
Justin Amash strongly endorses and says he should be #1 priority for getting liberty candidates in office.

This looks like a great opportunity to replace a hardcore statist NSA supporter with someone who could stand with Thomas Massie and Justin Amash as the strongest voices for liberty in congress.
He is kicking off his campaign at an event with Justin Amash on Saturday May 3rd in Michigan. You can find out more info on the event page:
