Harvard Professor Lawrence Lessig Announces Presidential Campaign

Some may know him as a law professor at Harvard Law School but now, Lawrence Lessig will be known as a presidential candidate. Wednesday, at noon outside the Earl M. Bourdon Elderly Housing Development on Maple Street in Claremont, Lessig formally announced a run for the nation’s highest office.

Around him was gathered a friendly crowd, who listened to the professor speak for about 40 minutes, focusing on campaign finance reform and how America has lost its way as a democracy.

Prior to his announcement, Lessig had raised one million dollars and gathered 8000 supporters through an online campaign.
