Attorney Robert Sarvis, the Libertarian Party’s nominee for Governor of Virginia, answered five questions submitted via e-mail by accredited Wikinews reporter William Saturn.

Sarvis has garnered double digits in opinion polls for the 2013 Virginia gubernatorial election, an unusual feat for a third party candidate. The latest Newsmax/Zogby poll from late September placed him at 13 percent, 14 points behind Republican Party nominee Ken Cuccinelli, Virginia’s Attorney General, and 19 points behind Democratic Party nominee Terry McAuliffe, the former Democratic National Committee chairman, with 24 percent undecided. Whoever wins election on November 5, 2013, would replace outgoing governor Bob McDonnell.

On his campaign website, Sarvis notes he favors parental school choice through student vouchers, simplification of Virginia’s Tax Code, US Second Amendment — gun — rights, same-sex marriage, and reform of the state’s drug laws. With Wikinews, Sarvis discusses his background, views on McDonnell’s tenure, keys to campaign success, plan to implement his agenda, and the former Virginia governor he most admires.
