Ken Krawchuk, who ran for governor with the Libertarian Party in 2002, said Friday he plans to form an exploratory committee to seek the party's 2014 nomination.

Krawchuk, 60, is an IT entrepreneur and freelance writer born and educated in Philadelphia. He promotes homeschooling and charter schools, the elimination of parole for violent criminals and a concept he calls the separation of society and state, which aims to reduce public reliance on social programs.

“When elected I promise to veto every tax increase and use the line-item veto to eliminate pork and unconstitutional spending,” he wrote in an email, also promising to cut the personal income tax.

State access laws require Krawchuk obtain close to 20,000 signatures to be included on a statewide ballot.
