Ron Paul Loyalists Stepping Up to Fill Campaign Agenda

Karen Kwiatkowski, a Republican candidate for Congress in Virginia, rarely passes up an opportunity to scold Washington politicians about runaway defense spending, which she says is an egregious waste of taxpayer dollars that does little to make Americans safer.

Halfway across the country, Tisha Casida, a Colorado independent, says she’ll push to end the drug war and legalize marijuana if she’s elected to the House of Representatives. In Florida, Calen Fretts, a Libertarian seeking to unseat a veteran Republican congressman, promises that if he’s elected he’ll begin working to abolish the U.S. Federal Reserve.
