"We are the bridge on all those sorts of issues where the
Republicans have no other bridges, so maybe we should put up a toll
road and make them pay to come across," says John
Dennis, the libertarian-leaning Republican candidate
currently running to unseat Rep. Nancy Pelosi. "We are the bridge
to the millennials. I don't think there is any question about
that."Dennis has spoken in favor of same-sex marriage, would like
to abolish the Departments of Agriculture, Commerce, and Education,
and is seeking to repeal the Patriot Act. He also supports the
decriminalization of marijuana. "I'm not telling people to go out
and smoke pot," Dennis explains, "but if you do, it's your choice
and your responsibility." This election marks Dennis' fourth campaign against the former
Speaker of the House. While the prospect of success against Pelosi
may be grim, Dennis says he always "runs to win." Reason TV's Nick Gillespie caught up with Dennis at
the Lincoln Labs' Reboot
Conference, held July 18-20 in San Francisco, California, to
discuss Nancy Pelosi, the liberty wing of the Republican Party, and
what it will take to reach millennials.Interview by Nick Gillespie. Edited by Will Neff. Shot by
