Alabama Libertarian Party Runs a Write-in Candidate for U.S. Senate Special Election

Alabama holds a special election for U.S. Senate on December 12, 2017. Because the Alabama ballot access laws are so severe, only the Republican and Democratic nominees will be on the ballot. However, the Libertarian Party has nominated a write-in candidate, Ron Bishop, and his candidacy has been mentioned already in the Birmingham and Anniston daily newspapers.
