"Richard Charles - Charles said he was spending one month this spring on a "whistle-stop tour to take America's pulse" as part of his run for Congress.
A supporter of GOP presidential candidate Paul, Charles said his goal is to support and defend the Constitution and liberty as does the Texas congressman.
He said both the Democratic and Republican party leaders have violated the Constitution by going to war without congressional approval and passing laws that strip terror suspects [citizens] of their rights.

"My goal is to represent all Nevadan and American citizens, rather than" the political party organizations and "big donor special interests," Charles said.
