Craig T. Stephens is the only Independent Candidate for U.S. Congress on the Texas ballot. The 23rd Congressional District covers 785 miles along the U.S.-Mexico border. The House Representative Candidate received an unexpected boost from the Democratic Party as they attempt to split the conservative vote.

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee states:

"Craig Stephens favors dramatically reducing taxes. Craig Stephens will fight to make drastic cuts to government spending, get tough on border security, and stop illegal immigration. In Washington, Stephens will make deep cuts to taxes and work to reduce the size of the IRS."

While this advertisement was aimed to reduce the threat of the Republican challenger, it appears to have brought the candidacy of the Independent Conservative to the forefront of the election.

The Liberty Institute, a nonprofit organization that publishes the "Free Voters Guide", refused to list Stephens as a Congressional candidate. Although claiming to be a comprehensive statewide guide, it discriminated against Craig Stephens by not substantiating his official candidacy in the 2010 General Election. Since his exclusion, Mr. Stephens has spent the majority of his time meeting people face to face and talking about the issues that are of greatest concern to registered voters in his District.

When asked how he felt about his chances, Mr. Stephens replied:

"Every citizen of this great nation deserves a chance to succeed. Party politics is destroying our nation, Republicans and Democrats are just taking turns filling their pockets. We can do better without the parties. I feel like we have a chance to make history and elect an Independent to the U.S. Congress."

Stephens has taken the unprecedented act of refusing campaign contributions in support of his candidacy. He believes that "If you accept money to support your campaign, the people who gave you the money...may actually think they've purchased a lawmaker."

Craig T. Stephens believes meaningful dialog can take place without the interference of party politics. With more issues on the line, an Independent candidate may force a greater voter turn out despite a history of political exclusion.
