CANDIDATES

Candidate for United States Senator

Candidate: Kevin O'Connor

Party: Legal Marijuana Now Endorsed

Ballot: On the ballot in 2020

"No More Heroes, No More Herds"

 

"Stop looking for heroes to save us and stop voting for herds to rule us. Heroes are for children and herds have no integrity."

"BE BOLD, BE INDEPENDENT"

 

Kevin is a lifelong independent and with his endorsement by the Legal Marijuana Now Party, he plans to begin an independent movement that will serve the interests of the people of Minnesota rather than entrenched political Parties. "We don't need any masters and excessive government is bad government".  With a varied background of business, military, and volunteerism he can use his experience to better serve Minnesota.

 

Mr. O’Connor strongly supports the medicinal use of cannabis and any other plant which can be beneficial for the health of people without interference by the government. Kevin feels that these decisions and most others are the authority and responsibility of each individual to make.  "The war on drugs is a complete failure and has had many devastating consequences on our society; it's time for that to go".  

"We are adults in a free society with authority and responsibility for ourselves and the government that we allow.  We have allowed FAR TOO MUCH. The government that governs least governs best. Let’s get started."
