Libertarian Powell running for Oklahoma governor

Powell enters race for Libertarian Party gubernatorial nomination | News |

July 8, 2017 - "The Oklahoma Libertarian Party’s most successful candidate to date, Chris Powell, is seeking the nomination for Governor.

"Powell, of Bethany, received more than 89,000 votes running for county office in 2016, besting Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson’s statewide total of 83,481....

"Powell, active in the OKLP since 2000 including a term as chairman, contrasts his greater depth of political experience as compared to the other Libertarian candidates for the state’s highest office. In regard to those seeking the Republican and Democrat nominations, Powell says, 'My life is far more representative of the vast majority of Oklahomans than that of the members of the political establishment in those other two parties. I understand the daily problems of regular people in ways those politicians never can.'

"Powell intends to focus on empowering local school boards and teachers, elimination of special interest tax credits, state agency consolidation, criminal justice reform, and working to reduce divisions in the Legislature, all of which will help address the ongoing budget problems."
