Sean Haugh Issues Opening Statement

Sean Haugh of Durham, NC posted a video on his campaign’s YouTube channel today explaining why he is a candidate for the US Senate seat that is up for election in 2014.

“I didn't want to do it at first but now I am having some fun with it. I want to talk about stopping all war, literally and metaphorically, at home and abroad. Really I’m just doing this for myself, so I can vote for something other than more war and more debt. If you want to vote for me too, go right ahead,” stated Haugh.

Overall there are 13 primary election candidates vying for one of the the three nominations available from parties that will be on the ballot in November. That includes eight Republican candidates, three Democratic candidates (among them incumbent Senator Kay Hagan), and two Libertarians: Tim D’Annunzio of Raeford and Haugh.

For the Libertarians, it will be only the second primary election in party history. Back in 2000, there was a contested race for the nomination for governor: Barbara Howe won with 923 votes over Johnathan Littlejohn, who had 231 votes. The date of the primary is May 6 and voters registered as either Libertarian or unaffiliated are eligible to vote in the Libertarian contest.
