Libertarian Candidate for Governor Visits Waco

Posted: Updated:
(KCEN)—Kathie Glass has a simple campaign strategy. Visit all 254 counties in the state of Texas before Election Day. She can now check McLennan County off her list.

The Libertarian candidate for Governor spoke in front of a small but passionate crowd at Uncle Dan’s BBQ Monday night.

Glass ran for Governor in 2010, but says in last four years, the Libertarian Party has made massive strides in Texas.

“The Texans I see all across Texas see the same way,” said Glass. “They’re sick of the cronyism, they’re sick of the two party system.”

In her speech Glass attacked Washington politics, the NSA, and Texas Republicans saying their decades of control has resulted in nothing. Glass added that anyone thinking there’s no room for a third party in the Texas political landscape better get ready for a fight.

“We can do this,” said Glass. “We know we have problems, we know we need to fight, and we’re Texans. We will do it because to us it’s no retreat no surrender.”

Glass says she has visited nearly 100 of the 254 counties in Texas. She added that this will not be her last visit to Waco.
