Political Reality-TV Star Bob Vanech to Run for Connecticut Governor in 2006
Outspoken Cast Member Runs for 'Real' Office after Ten-Week National Run on Showtime's American
Candidate Political-Reality TV Show
LOS ANGELES, CA and HARTFORD, CT - July 30, 2004 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Bob Vanech, the 35 year-old, Stamford,
Connecticut-born entrepreneur and venture capitalist, has announced his intention to run a genuine
gubernatorial campaign in his state of origin. Currently one of ten would-be candidates on Viacom's
(NYSE:VIA) new political-reality television show, American Candidate premiering on Showtime, August
1st, Vanech promises "a fresh perspective on leadership in Connecticut."
Imitating a run for the Presidency, American Candidate introduces new faces and ideas to the
political discourse. "Given former-governor Rowland's near-impeachment, now seems the logical time
to announce my plans for 2006," said Mr. Vanech today in Los Angeles. "Yes, American Candidate
intends to debut a Presidential candidate; it could well be me. But in the state-governor's race,
my ideas can have an immediate impact. And with the right support, I am hopeful that I will become
Connecticut's next governor. Our country needs leaders that are everyday, real Americans."
Self-described as "fiercely independent," Mr. Vanech favors smaller government. Having been
registered as a member of both the Democratic and Republican parties, he would consider accepting
the endorsement and ballot access of one of the parties, but is currently running as an
unaffiliated independent. Touchstones of Mr. Vanech's gubernatorial campaign echo his national
platform: "Challenge the political establishment, restore true morality and democratic values, and
achieve excellence in all things American."
