Adam Kokesh is one of the more intriguing Republican congressional candidates of the 2010 cycle. A 27-year-old libertarian who became a leader of Iraq Veterans Against the War, Kokesh is mounting a Ron Paul-style antiwar, small-government campaign in the heavily Democratic 3rd district of New Mexico — it gave the Obama-Biden ticket 61 percent of the vote in 2008 while freshman Rep. Ben Ray Lujan (D-N.M.) won with 57 percent of the vote in a three-way race. And at a screening of “For Liberty,” a documentary about the Paul campaign that features Kokesh, the candidate met Chris Broughton, a Second Amendment activist who gained some infamy this year when he brought an AR-15 to a rally outside an appearance by President Obama.
