Bob Bowman was the first presidential candidate officially recognized by the Reform Party in 1999, and for several weeks was the only one. He campaigned in 48 states. Central to his campaign were (1) electoral reform (severing the connection between big money and political power), (2) international trade reform (renouncing NAFTA, GATT, and the WTO), (3) health care reform ( a doctor-run single-payer national health system), (4) structural reform (ending the domination of society by transnational corporations and banks), (5) economic reform (allowing workers to keep more of the wealth they create), and (6) foreign relations reform (freeing the American people from the threat of nuclear terrorism by a return to a Constitutional foreign policy which refuses to go to war for the financial interests of the wealthy few). His campaign appealed to liberal Democrats and conservative Republicans alike. He is the candidate of all those who want to see a Constitutional government serving the people of the United States instead of the global big money interests.
Dr. Bob is married to Maggie Bowman, his loving wife of 50 years. They have seven children and 22 grandchildren (so far!).
