Mark Selzer interviews Mr. Thompson at the 2004 Libertarian Party convention
Mr. Thompson was the Libertarian Party’s candidate for Governor of Wisconsin in 2002 in which he won 10.4% of the vote in a three-way race, which split the vote between incumbent Governor Scott McCallum and challenger Jim Doyle. Governor McCallum later charged that Thompson cost him the Governorship!
Thompson talks about the police raid on his restaurant in 2000 and how it led him to abandon the Republican Party and join the Libertarian Party to become the most successful gubernatorial candidate the party has ever fielded.
