Libertarian Bill Peirce a candidate for governor

The Statehouse News Bureau reported recently that professor emeritus at Case Western Reserve University Bill Peirce has announced plans to run for governor in 2006.

Peirce is the first Libertarian to announce a run for governor in 2006 and is a life-long member of the National Rifle Association.

Peirce's campaign website states that his belief that "law-abiding citizens should not have to explain why they want to buy or own a gun" and goes on to say that "restoring your unrestricted right to own and carry a firearm will be a top priority of the Peirce administration."

Assuming the candidate gathers the needed signatures, Bill Peirce’s name will be on the gubernatorial ballot, listed as an independent (the Libertarian party is not recognized in Ohio).
