0001_andre_marrouAndre Verne Marrou (born December 4, 1938) is an American political figure, affiliated with the Libertarian Party. Born in Nixon, Texas, he graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1962. One of twelve Libertarians to be elected to a state legislature, Marrou served in the Alaska House of Representatives for one term, from 1984 to 1986. He was the party’s vice-presidential nominee in the 1988 election; on the ballot in 46 states and the District of Columbia, U.S. Congressman Ron Paul and Marrou placed third in the popular vote with 432,179 votes (0.5%), behind Bush-Quayle and Dukakis-Bentsen. Paul and Marrou were kept off the ballot in Missouri, and received votes there only when written in, due to what the St. Louis Post-Dispatch called a “technicality”. In the 1992 election, Marrou was the party’s presidential nominee, on the ballot in all 50 states and DC, receiving 291,627 votes (0.28%).
