Libertarian candidate served 13 years in the Army
Sep. 30, 2008
Libertarian candidate Teddy Fleck cites his 13-year career in the U.S. Army as an example of his leadership.
"The kind of leadership I showed in the Army, combined with the common-sense leadership of a common Missourian, makes me the best candidate for lieutenant governor," Fleck said.
The cross-country truck driver holds many political views typically valued by the Libertarian Party, including reducing the size of government.
But Fleck hasn't been shy about voicing his opinions about issues specific to Missouri, either. At a recent forum, Fleck promised that, if elected to office, he would oppose Republican gubernatorial candidate Kenny Hulshof's attempt to turn some Missouri highways into toll roads.
