Rick Vandeven, Libertarian Party candidate for US Representative (MO-8), is proud to have received an A rating from the Gun Owners of America. This is his second A rating from the organization. The GOA is a non-profit lobbying organization formed in 1975 to preserve and defend the Second Amendment rights of gun owners. Rick agrees with the GOAs position that firearms ownership is a freedom issue.
The campaign also announces the following public appearances by Rick Vandeven in October:
Rick will attend a candidate forum sponsored by the Rolla Tea Party on October 11. He participated in a Rolla Tea Party forum in 2010 also, and looks forward to meeting with the freedom minded independents on the west side of the district again.
On October 20, Rick will march in the Southeast Missouri State Homecoming Parade with members of the SE Missouri State Campus Libertarians, the Cape County LP, and the Scott County LP.
On October 24, Rick will participate in a candidate forum in Ste. Genevieve sponsored by the Ste. Genevieve Herald. At this time he is the only candidate in the race who is committed to appear at what may be the only candidate forum or debate sponsored by a member of the media this year.
On October 25, Rick will take questions from the members of the West Plains Campaign for Liberty group. Rick was a member of C4L after the 2008 Ron Paul campaign before joining the Libertarian Party in 2010.
