Beitler boasts 10 percent

By William R. Toler

In a positive upswing for Libertarians, US Senate candidate Mike Beitler garnered 10 percent of a recent poll according to PoliticsDaily.com.

Republican incumbent Sen. Richard Burr pulled in a less-than-impressive 38 percent while Democratic nominee Elaine Marshall, current Secretary of State, had a showing of 33 percent.

Like most Libertarian candidates, Beitler is relatively unknown because of mainstream media’s lack of equal coverage.

Beitler is a business professor at UNC Greensboro. He also works as a business consultant and as host for the internet radio show “Free Markets.” Before teaching, he worked for a CPA firm and in the banking industry.

In addition to his other exploits, Beitler has written three books, including Rational Individualism: A Moral Argument for Limited Government & Capitalism, which outlines his political philosophy.

Beitler “gladly accepted the challenge” of running for Senate when approached by the state chairman of the Libertarian Party. “It has been exciting to offer a political alternative to disenchanted Democrats and Republicans. With enough volunteers and donors, we can get America back on track in 2010.”
