The last time I sat down with former Des Moines School Board Member Jonathan Narcisse to discuss An Iowa Worth Fighting For.  I asked if he was considering a gubernatorial run.  He said, “that’s an idea worth considering.”  We met at Smokey Row in Des Moines last Friday to discuss why he’s running as what he describes as “the only small government, low tax, free market, 10th amendment candidate in the field.”

We discussed government reform, cutting taxes, education, the courts, same sex marriage, and I asked him about his past support of President Barack Obama and Governor Chet Culver.  He’s a registered Democrat, but is running as an independent.

Whether you love him or hate him (I don’t know many who know of him who are neutral) you never have to wonder what he thinks.

I hope you enjoy the interview.

  1. I don’t know anything about Iowa politics, but isn’t “small government democrat” an oxymoron? Why on earth does he consider himself a democrat if he wants smaller government and lower taxes?

    1. @Casey, Yes it is, even in Iowa. I think he considers himself more an independent, but is a registered Democrat.

      I don’t really get it either, and his answer to my question of why he supported Obama and Culver didn’t make sense because he was hearing something different from them than I did.
