Creative Loafing Covers Georgia Libertarian Campaign – Andrew Hunt

1402512026-andrew_hunt_2 Georgia Libertarian Party gubernatorial candidate Andrew Hunt meets with media at state capitol 

“In this year’s gubernatorial election, Atlanta nanotech entrepreneur Andrew Hunt is aiming to attract more than the usual nano-vote for the Libertarian Party (see what we did there?).

“I’m not in here just to get five percent,” Hunt said during a sit-down today at the Capitol. At least half the voters are dissatisfied with both parties, as proven by polls and low turnout, he said. And thus, the opportunity for a third party candidate.

Hunt calls himself a “moderate” Libertarian and said he thinks his message of fiscal conservativeness, smaller government, and social liberalism will resonate with voters.

“We need more liberty … that means don’t control peoples’ lives,” he said.”

Don’t Count Out Hunt

Atlanta, GA: Data from a recent poll was released Monday regarding multiple upcoming races, including the race for Governor of Georgia. In a three way race between incumbent Nathan Deal, Democrat Jason Carter, and Libertarian Andrew Hunt, Hunt is currently polling at a surprisingly high 9%.

Perhaps what’s more telling, Hunt is currently garnering a whopping 29% of the Hispanic vote, demolishing Carter’s measly 7% but trailing Deal’s surprising 38% among the same demographic.

Obviously, the Libertarian message of sound economics and personal liberty is resonating with a lot of Georgia voters, particularly those who are usually overlooked or even overtly scorned by the political establishment. It’s still a long road to November, and with 13% of voters currently undecided, Hunt is poised to make a profound impact on the race for Governor.
