The Libertarian candidate for governor of Indiana had 24 percent support in an early September poll of likely voters and is about to give the sitting Republican governor, Eric Holcomb, a run for his money.
But who is he?
Donald Rainwater, age 56, is a software engineer and IT project manager from Hamilton County, north of Indianapolis. He served eight years in the U.S. Navy and has a wife and grown children. That’s his basic biography.
As with most Libertarians, things get a bit more interesting when they begin to talk.
“If we believe in the intent of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States or the constitution of the state of Indiana, then we have to make a decision,” Rainwater told InsideSources. “Are we going to be a nation of laws, are we going to be a nation of limited government based on constitutional constructs, or are we just not? And… I choose to follow the Constitution.”..
