DescriptionReason’s Dave Weigel ran into Mike Gravel and managed a quick interview. For background, I had heard from two sources (names shall remain undisclosed), that Gravel was possibly interested in a Libertarian Party presidential bid. I didn’t run them without confirmation and had received no response from Gravel’s staff to my question on the topic. Weigel’s interview confirms the rumors.

Gravel took me over to a corner and quieted down. “I don’t say this in public, but I’m more libertarian than Ron Paul. I took that article over to him this last week—we met for the first time. And the article’s got that section with the top libertarian issues. Gambling, choice, immigration. Ron looks at the list and points at each of the issues. ‘I’m not for that, I’m not for that, I’m not for that.’ He was against half of the things on the list! And I’m for all of those things.”
