WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (Exponent) - A senior decided that his first step to making the world a more peaceful environment would be running for United States Congress.
Benjamin Gehlhausen, a senior in the School Of Management, is running for the Libertarian party in Indiana's 4th Congressional District race, which includes Tippecanoe County. He compares his values and beliefs with those of Republican Texas Rep. Ron Paul. In 2007, Gehlhausen attended a session where Paul spoke and he liked that Paul cared for the whole country and put his individual needs last.
"I listened to what he had to say and he was just being the most honest person on stage," Gehlhausen said. "He wasn't trying to score political points, he was just explaining things in the way he saw them. I was attracted to his passion for being a statesman."
