HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The Libertarian candidate for Congress in Mississippi's 4th District made a campaign stop in Hattiesburg Thursday. Ron Williams said he's running for office as a Libertarian because both political parties have spent too much money and have let the American people down.

Williams, 54, is a former Moss Point businessman.

He ran unsuccessfully for Mississippi governor as a Republican in 2011.

"Both parties, both the Democrats and the Republicans, have led us astray," Williams said. "Both parties have breached their trust with the voters. I think people are ready for honesty, I think people are ready for openness, I think people are ready for something different," he said.

Williams will face incumbent Republican Steven Palazzo, Democrat Michael Herrington and Reform Party candidate Robert W. Claunch in the Nov. 6 general election.
