Larry Pressler's candidacy revealed just how much Congress has declined, as the former Republican Senator chose to run as an Independent, eschewing the partisanship of Congress and his former party.

“We have a government that no longer works. The Centrist Project is a group of rational people who say we cannot continue what we are doing today and expect that our country is going to improve. They have a winning strategy to breakthrough the poisonous gridlock in Washington.” – Senator Larry Pressler
