More on CP candidate, Robert Owens…

On July 9, Ohio Constitution Party State Chairman, Robert Owens, was certified for the November 2008 ballot, as an independent candidate for Attorney General. Ohio is holding a special election for that office because the incumbent elected in 2006 resigned in disgrace a few months ago. The law required Owens to submit 750 valid signatures. He was given only 10 days to collect them. The state took two months to check the petitions.

Robert and his wife, Teri, have been extremely active in organizing a new state committee for the Constitution Party in Ohio over the last year. They led an impressive delegation from Ohio to the National Convention in Kansas City, where they were outspoken supporters the eventual Presidential nominee, Chuck Baldwin.
At most there will be only three candidates for Attorney General on the November ballot in Ohio. There is some feeling that the Republicans may not even field a candidate, leaving it a contest between Owens and the candidate of the Democrats, the party of the disgraced former Attorney General.

    Wait. . . so this guy could have a serious chance? Screw Baldwin, put your effort on him- I always thought special elections might be the best shot for third parties.

    What ever this guy is paying Libertarian Jeremiah Arn as Campaine Manager he is not getting his money’s worth! The first rule of politics is not to make any unnecessary enemies! This guy has already disrupted the Ballot Access News group for no good reason! Good luck Mister Owens, you will need it!

    I’m waiting for Donald Lake to say something in rebuttal to these comments by the Citizen for a better Veterans Home! What would we do without these “two.”

    = Good point. But one fo the reasons why we put a good amount of resources behind our Prez. candidates is because the more publicity and activism, the more registered voters, money and ballot-access we will bring in.

    Its that simple, we advertise our prez. candidate nationally to gain ground in funraising, ballot access and more people joining.
