Jonathan Dine got his name out to the public by sporting temporary tattoos of his name down his arms and words that read Libertarian Party across his back.

Wrap: Long-shot Libertarian candidate, Jonathan Dine has been testing out new campaign techniques to attract voters to a third party candidate.
Dine says he had a friend give him temporary tattoos of his name down his arms, with the words Libertarian Party across his back.
Dine says his goal was to draw attention to his name, but also spread awareness about the Libertarian Party itself.
|Description: "There's four million registered voters. Only two million participated, one million for the Republicans and one million for the Democrats. So there were two million people out there who you know didn't feel the need to participate or didn't feel like their was adequate representation for them."|
Dine says stepping away from the career politician is his main goal for the future of government.
