"'I am running to become the senator from Ohio,' he says. 'I see my campaign as a way to talk about an alternative view of society that put peoples' needs before corporate profits. I also see the campaign as a way to build a network of socialist activists in Ohio, people who walk on picket lines to support workers and their unions, people who organize against wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, people who fight for gay and lesbian, or better, LGBT rights, people who want to dramatically reduce the use of carbon fuels to improve our environment.' He adds, 'I believe the working people make this country run and working people, not the banks and corporations, should run the country.'"
