Keith Hanson says he knows his chances of winning are slim, but says he provides voters with an alternative, over the Democrat or Republican candidate. The 32-year-old works as a systems engineer for Harland Financial Solutions in Fargo and lives with his wife and one-year-old son.

He says the trillions of dollars this country has racked up in debt has gotten out of hand. He also proposes reducing America's military activity overseas through less warfare and fewer bases abroad.

He's challenging Democrat Tracy Potter and Republican John Hoeven.
