Kamal Jain (R) for Auditor

Kamal Jain has announced that he has left the Libertarian party and registered as a Republican.  He will now continue his campaign for Massachusetts State Auditor within the Republican primary.  Republicans Mary Z. Connaughton and Earle Stroll are already running for that position.  According to their 2009 year end reports Kamal Jain has $3,169.92, Mary Z. Connaughton has $32,920.53 and Earle Stroll has $100.00 cash on hand.

Kamal Jain is a Massachusetts native with over 20 years of private sector experience in business and technology.  He is running on a platform of more openness and transparency in government.  More information can be found on his campaign website KamalJain.com or his facebook page.  I recommend reading his Total Spending: Even Worse Than We Imagined.  I have included his video speaking at the Audit the Fed Rally in Boston below the fold.

In 2002, Kamal Jain rand for Auditor as a Libertarian receiving 133,997 votes or 7.2%.  He finished in third place behind Democrat Inumbent Joe DeNucci and Unenrolled John James Xenakis.  There was no Republican in the race.

Please tune in tomorrow for our Red Mass Group exclusive interview with Kamal Jain.

About Mike "DD4RP" Rossettie

  • he sounds good to me….why the decision to change parties?

  • Kamal is identifying himself as an “Independent”, so it sounds like he had already left the Libertarian Party.  He’s a great guy and I think he’s the ideal candidate for Auditor.

  • If true, then welcome home to the MassGOP & best of luck in the primary!  

  • MerrimackMan

    “l”ibertarians with the Republican Party. But as time goes on, its only more obvious that the Democrats, and letting the Democrats get elected, is the total opposite of libertarian philosophy.


  • Ron Paul told us to work within the existing 2 party system’s framework.  Although I respect (I)ndependents and (L)ibertarians, when it comes to ballot time, voters are almost always choosing Coke or Pepsi.  RC Cola is great, but it will never be #1.

    Kamal Jain has made a wise decision, and I hope more great minds of our Commonwealth decide to raise up the Mass GOP to promote our common cause.

  • For Auditor.

    I am thrilled to see a bounty of Republican candidates for Auditor.  With a primary full of debates and then a general, it will result in a series of good choices for the voters.

    However, I am concerned that we have not yet seen a similar slate of candidates for Treasurer and Attorney General.  As more people come forward to seek statewide office I hope we see some good candidates for both those offices as well.
