Tar Heel Libertarian to run for president

R. Lee Wrights, a Winston-Salem native, will announce his candidacy for the Libertarian Party presidential nomination at the state convention in Hickory on Saturday.

Wrights, 52, said he wants to his candidacy to be “a loud, clear and unequivocal call to stop all war.”

Although he now lives in Burnet Texas, Wrights spent most of his life in North Carolina. He is a former Libertarian Party national vice chairman and the editor and co-founder of Liberty for All online magazine.

Wrights has pledged that 10 percent of all donations to his campaign will go toward ballot access efforts across the country.

The Libertarian Party will hold its convention Saturday at the Gateway Center Hotel and Convention Center in Hickory.
