ABILENE, Texas -

The Libertarian running for Congress in District 19 stopped in Abilene Monday.

Chip Peterson is running for the seat currently held by Randy Neugebauer.

Peterson is a former business and economics professor at Texas Tech University.

He says he's running against Neugebauer to give people the option of voting for a well-qualified candidate who doesn't belong to either major party.

There is no Democratic candidate on the November ballot
