Candidate Profile |
Green Party candidate Bob Fitrakis is campaigning for Congress in 2012 in Ohio's newly created 3rd District, six years after making an unsuccessful bid for governor as an independent candidate supported by the Green Party.
He previously ran for Congress in 1992 as the Democratic candidate in the state's 12th District but lost to Rep. John Kasich, the Republican who went on to become Ohio's governor in 2011.
Fitrakis says that if elected he would introduce an amendment to make voting a constitutional right, and he would call for officials to overturn the Supreme Court's Citizens United decision, which significantly eases political spending restrictions on corporations and unions, giving way to the so-called super PACs that have raised millions for ad attacks on candidates.
