Libertarian Candidate, US House of Representatives
Mike Fellows is the state chairman of the Montana Libertarian Party and a candidate for the US House of Representatives. A graduate of Havre High School and the University of Montana, Mike lives in the liberal city of Missoula, where he serves on the board of Missoula Community Access Television and American Legion Post 27. In addition to championing liberty, his hobbies include cars, music, and the outdoors.
Mike is a former Army reservist and a state coordinator for the Montana Fully Informed Jury Association. In 2012, he made history by becoming the first Libertarian in history to achieve over 40 percent in a partisan statewide race.
As a long-standing member of the Libertarian Party, he fights to have a smaller, fiscally conservative government that respects the freedom for individuals to live their lives as they choose, so long as they don’t infringe on the equal right of others to do the same. Mike tirelessly upholds the values of liberty and consistently applies them to the important issues facing Montanans.
Mike has been awarded an ‘A’ rating from Gun Owners of America, and he strongly upholds the Second Amendment and the right of the people to keep and bear arms. His concerns about the size of the national debt encourage him to push for ways to address the spending habits of Congress. Mike also reminds voters that government can easily become force over the individual if not kept in check, and he has been critical of the 2001 Patriot Act for violating constitutional provisions, including the unreasonable searches and seizures it allows for.
Mike Fellows consistently represents the Libertarian value of minimum government and maximum freedom, and he runs for office to advance those principles for Montana’s constituents. He represents the real choice for people who desire a smaller government rather than the tax and spend approach of some candidates. He hopes to inspire Montanans to get out and vote.
