  2. Boman and Schwartz seek Levin’s seat — by Scotty Boman

    Denver, CO – College Professor Scotty Boman and attorney Leonard Schwartz officially announced their candidacy for United States Senate to delegates attending the Libertarian Party’s presidential nominating convention at the Adam’s Mark Sheraton hotel in Denver Colorado. Boman said, “I have decided to seek the Libertarian nomination for US Senate at the Libertarian Party of Michigan convention.” The Libertarian Party of Michigan (LPM) will be nominating their candidates on June 7th. Boman is attending the National Convention as part of the Michigan delegation. The Libertarian Party has nominated Bob Barr for President and Wayne Allyn Root for Vice President.

    Boman has already spoken to groups on special issues including a March 21 appearance in Royal Oak at a forum sponsored by Iraq Moratorium and Eleventh Hour for Peace on “How should Congress end the occupation of Iraq.” [ http://11hour4peace.org ] The other appearance was at the Detroit Liberation Day event that was held in Detroit’s Grand Circus Park on May third. The outdoor event was primarily focused on Medical Marijuana and Civil Liberties [http://detroitliberation.org]. “I am neither a Conservative nor a Liberal.” Said Boman “I am a Libertarian.” He went on to say, “Goldwater Conservatives and Jeffersonian Liberals both represent what is best in Conservatism and Liberalism. Libertarians believe in maximizing freedom and minimizing government restrictions. We don’t all agree on the details, but we agree on the direction we need to go in. That direction is not left or right, but up: Up to a higher level of liberty than we have.”

    Leonard Schwartz had been campaigning for the Libertarian Vice Presidential nomination, but dropped out at the last minute. In his announcement to delegates Schwartz said that “When I spoke to leaders of my state party about my nominating speech, I discovered that they did not want me to run for vice president, but instead wanted me to be the state party’s candidate for US Senator So to save your time I am withdrawing my name for Vice President, and again, will be the Libertarian Party of Michigan’s candidate for US Senator.” His announcement was greeted with applause, and Libertarian Party Chair, Bill Redpath, encouraged him saying, “Best wishes in that endeavor; by all means.”

    Boman, who has also supported the campaign of Republican Ron Paul, said, “It will be up to the LPM delegates to decide which candidate is best for the job. Naturally, I think that person is me, but either way, I will be voting Libertarian this November.”
