The more I hear of this guy, the more I like him. Just a regular Joe, haha, but he has shown the ability to think for himself and knows the common sense solutions.

2004 Illinois senate race.

I would vote for Alan Keyes enthusiastically. He’s been my favorite in every debate I’ve ever seen him in. There is one clear thinking principled ol boy.

You will be able to write him in in Michigan. He is officially running for the newly founded American Independent Party. I don’t completely agree with his abandonment of the Republican Party, but he has the best principles of any candidate, and is the most likely to uphold the constitution.

…When he ran at the last minute after recruited by the Illinois Republican Committee, after the republican incumbent withdrew following the discovery of a sex scandal he was in.

It should be noted when Keyes filed he was at 24% in the polls. After debating he was up to 27%. He clearly won the debate season and would have faired much better had the initial conditions been a bit different.

Not the best source, but wiki has the best summary of the race:

What the hell are you talking about? No, mostly because of money stuff. Michael Lewis goes into it in “Losers,” good book about the 1996 primaries.
