As Many Candidates Talked, One Candidate Decided to Listen

Welcome to our weekly post, Independent Action, where we let you know the important moves Independent candidates and organizations made over the past week. 


Neal Simon, an Independent candidate for U.S. Senate in Maryland, endorsed by Unite America, continued to be creative with his campaign. He announced a “listening tour” in which he will spend time with Marylanders across all 24 Maryland counties over the next month. 


Kevin Kensinger, an Independent candidate for California’s 48th Congressional District, is scheduled to “attend a forum Wednesday morning in Costa Mesa will feature candidates for the 48th Congressional District seat discussing issues related to senior citizens and people with disabilities, such as healthcare, Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid.”

Craig O’Dear, an Independent candidate for U.S. Senate in Missouri, endorsed by Unite America, picked up steam this past week when interviewed in the KSMU studio. During the interview, O’Dear said, “he would shake things up in Washington by creating non-caucus space in the Senate and by becoming what he called a “mediator” between Democrats and Republicans who frequently spar in the Senate.”
