Rusty Tomlinson to run for U.S. House in Texas as Green

From Green Party Watch, January 14, 2016:
tomlinsonPeace activist Rusty Tomlinson announced Wednesday that he will seek the Green Party nomination for the Texas 13th District U.S. House seat. The seat is currently held by Republican William “Mac” Thornberry, the chairman of the House Armed Services Committee.

Tomlinson told The Amarillo Globe-News, “[Thornberry] is in the position of keeping the United States strong militarily. I am more of a pacifist. I believe in, instead of seeking to be a world power, we should seek to be an equal partner of the family of nations…and start with talking instead of killing.”

Tomlinson, a retired special education teacher, is running under the slogan “A Radical Change”. He told the newspaper, “I will work to drastically reduce the size of our military and its budget. I will work to change our nation from the world’s only superpower, to an equal partner in the family of nations, ready to work as an equal.”

KAMR-TV Amarillo had a report on Tomlinson’s campaign, which can be viewed online.
