Chafee files with FEC to run for president

Former Rhode Island governor to run for US presidency as Libertarian - The Jerusalem Post- Rachel Wolf:

January 6, 2020 - "Former Rhode Island Governor Lincolon Chafee has filed to run for president as a Libertarian....The Federal Election Commission's online records indicate that Chafee filed his campaign on Sunday and listed Caswell Cooke Jr. as Chafee's campaign treasurer. The document also indicates that Christopher Thrasher is the candidate's 'Designated Agent' and the Providence Journal reported that Thrasher is Chafee's campaign manager.

"Chafee will make his formal announcement at the National Press Club in Washington, DC on Wednesday, Cooke told the Providence Journal. 'I believe in the guy,' Cooke, who also worked on Chafee's 2016 campaign, told the ... Journal. 'I believe in his honesty and integrity. Of all the politicians I’ve known in my life, he’s the most honest and forthright, and I have and will support him.'

"In addition to listing those working on his campaign, the online FEC records link to, which appears to be the beginning of Chafee's campaign website. On the website's home page is a list of suggested donation amounts, starting with $20.20, likely representing the 2020 election cycle. Above the list it says 'Protect Our Freedoms. Tell The Truth. No More Wars. No More Reckless Spending.'

"Additionally, the following message appeared on the website, 'Thirty years, zero scandals. Mayor. Governor. Senator. Libertarian. Lincoln leads with TRUTH.'"
