Danville man starts campaign for president

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - There could be a Virginia man on the ballot for president in 2012.

Ken Grammer is relatively unknown political figure.

He's from the Danville area, and he launched his campaign last week.

He tells local Danville papers that he is just a small business owner who has never run for office.

After the recent budget fights in Washington, he decided he could do better.

He describes himself as "fiscal conservative and a social liberal," who wants to create jobs and help improve the economy.

And while he still has a while before he can actually get his name on the ballot, he says he's going to rely on the Internet to get his message across.
