Libertarian candidate for U.S. Senate Robert Marquette Statement on President Obama’s SCOTUS Nominee

0B2A4955 (2)There has been a lot of political rhetoric out of Washington recently regarding Merrick Garland’s nomination to the SCOTUS.  President Obama has spent more than 7 years using the Constitution as a piñata, and now he lectures republicans on their constitutional duties.

Unity is yours for the taking. You need only to choose to step out of the darkness of partisan rhetoric, hatred and resentment and step into the light of love and tolerance for those around you.

Robert Marquette of Fargo officially announced his candidacy for U.S. Senate today. Mr. Marquette received the Libertarian Party of North Dakota’s endorsement at their annual meeting in November of last year .
