Republican Jim Rubens has served as a New Hampshire state senator, chair of the New Hampshire GOP platform committee, and ran in 2014 and 2016 as a candidate for US Senate. He was platform committee chair of America's most recent major third-party movement, the Independence Party, until the founding leadership slate was unceremoniously ousted and the party effort killed by Ross Perot in a 1993 convention coup.
Jim is very active in multiple movements to address legalized political corruption and to curtail federal fiscal insanity via amendments to the US Constitution. He serves on the board of American Promise and as New England chair for Take Back Our Republic. Jim makes his living as an investor and receives no payments for his political work.
