Libertarian Daniel Fishman Announces Senate Run
Beverly resident Daniel Fishman to attempt U.S. Senate bid.
Libertarian Daniel Fishman announced Monday evening that he will attempt to get on the ballot for U.S. Senate in this June's special election.
Fishman, a Beverly resident, garnered more than 16,000 votes in the 6th Congressional District election last fall.
"The thing I became most aware of on the campaign trail is that there is a large group of citizens in Massachusetts who are not being represented by the Democratic machine, which elects favorite sons time after time," Fishman said in a release. "Nor are they represented by the Republican party which is tied to a national platform a social tolerance policy from 1950."
Fishman announced his senate bid 'in a private conversation with a few close supporters,' the release said. The campaign website has been launched at www.fishmanforsenate.com.
"I am the most fiscally conservative and the most socially tolerant candidate in the race," he said. "There is an understanding in Massachusetts that Government has become a tool of corporations to protect them. So called "regulations" on corporations often serve to protect corporate interests from the power of the people. The Federal government bailed out the banks, limited BP's liability and wasted half a billion dollars trying to force the people to accept the government's choice for a Solar implementation. The government is not protecting the people from corporations -- usually the opposite is true."
