Vern Wuensche wants your vote for president

His website says he visited 3,000 businesses here the last time he ran for president, but Vern Wuensche's name has yet to enter the New Hampshire vernacular. So here's a primer on the Republican, who's again running for president: Wuensche (it's pronounced 'win-she') grew up on a farm in McDade, Texas, runs a construction business in the Houston area and spent 38 years working on 'campaigns of every type' before filing for the presidency in 2007, according to his website, voteforvern.com.

Wuensche is a proponent of a flat tax and believes government needs to take a more efficient, streamlined approach. 'Trimming around the edges won't do,' his website reads. 'An ax must be used. And I DO KNOW how to swing an ax.'

If you're wondering where Wuensche stands on specific policy issues, his website lays out 97 of them. If you're the kind of voter who wants to see decades-old family pictures and images scanned from his high school yearbook, those are there, too. And on his Facebook page, you can check out photos of his last campaign swing through New Hampshire - most appear to have been taken from his car.
