According to Pennsylvania Elections officials, John Krupa has submitted nominaitng petitions to run for governor under the banner of the Tea Party. Libertarian Party members Douglas Jamison and Marakay Rogers have submitted petitions with enough signatures to get on the ballot in this fall's U.S. Senate and governor races, respectively. Another Libertarian, Kat Valleley, has submitted enough signatures to qualify as Ms. Rogers' running mate.
In the 14th Congressional District, the seat held by Democratic Rep. Mike Doyle, Ed Bortz submitted the signatures needed to gain a spot on the ballot. ONe of Mr. Bortz's concerns, according to his web site, is the environmental threat posed by Marcellus Shale development
According to his campaign website, Jamison is an engineer with no background in politics. His site, with some tea partyish overtones and James Madison references, advocates for unspecified reductions in spending while maintaining a strong national defense. Jamison also proposes a 50 percent cut in pay and benefits for U.S. senators, which I imagine might be a fairly popular idea considering the current state of the institution.
Rogers is an attorney and LGBTQ rights advocate in York, according to a profile on the site Outright Libertarians. She ran unsuccessfully for a Superior Court seat last year, and her gubernatorial campaign website is in the works.
