Rob Lapham

By James Call, Tallahassee Democrat, June 4th, 2016:

The congressional District 2 primaries will be closed. A Libertarian candidate has emerged to challenge the four Republicans vying to succeed Rep. Gwen Graham, D-Tallahassee, in Washington.

Rob Lapham lived in Alaska for 35 years where he ran an IT company before moving to Texas in 2010, according to his website. There he served on the Texas Libertarian Executive Committee and ran for Congress in 2014.

In that race he pledged to downsize the military, eliminate the federal income tax and end the war on drugs. Lapham received 1.9 percent of the vote in a three-way race for the 22nd Congressional District of Texas.
