Asheville, North Carolina City Councilmember will Try to Qualify as an Independent for U.S. House in 2012

Published on March 31, 2011, by in General.

Cecil Bothwell says he will attempt to get on the ballot in North Carolina’s 11th district in 2012, as an independent candidate. No independent candidate has ever appeared on a government-printed ballot in North Carolina for either house of Congress. The current law requires a petition signed by 4% of the registered voters. However, bills are pending in each house of the legislature to ease the requirements.

Bothwell is a member of the Asheville city council. He is upset with the incumbent Democrat in this district. See this story. Thanks to ThirdPartyDaily for the link.
