When Louisiana voters go to the polls to chose a president on Nov. 4, they will find a name on the ballot many might not expect – Ron Paul.

Louisiana will be only one of two states where voters will have the opportunity to pull the lever for Paul, a congressman from Texas who ran unsuccessfully for the Republican presidential nomination. Paul built a wide coalition of grass roots support that helped him raise tens of millions of dollars for his campaign.

Paul has been added to the Louisiana ballot on the top of the Louisiana Taxpayers Party ticket with Barry Goldwater, Jr., a former Republican congressman from California and the son of the late Barry Goldwater, the Republican presidential nominee in 1964.

Paul and Goldwater are on the ballot due partly to the efforts of an Alexandria man, Brent Sanders.

Sanders, a Republican who ran unsuccessfully in the past as a Libertarian for both the U.S. House of Representatives and the Louisiana House of Representatives, helped create the Louisiana Taxpayers Party to place Paul on the ballot.

“There was a whole group of people who worked on it, not just me,” Sanders said. “I’m just located in the center of the state, so all the assets are sent to me and I distribute them.”

Those assets include Paul yard signs, bumper stickers and other paraphernalia, he said.

Louisiana is one of few states where no signatures are required to access the ballot.
