Former Ambassador Alan Keyes returns today to WorldNetDaily’s team of regular exclusive columnists.
Keyes, the presidential candidate of America’s Independent Party last year, was a regular columnist for the news source from 1998 to 2002. Since that time he has provided periodic guest commentary for WorldNetDaily readers.
A longtime promoter of liberty and constitutional government, Keyes first came to the nation’s attention as President Reagan’s assistant secretary of state for International Organizations and as ambassador to the United Nations Economic and Social Council, where he represented America’s sovereign interests in the U.N. General Assembly.
Keyes also served as president of Citizens Against Government Waste and was founder of National Taxpayers’ Action Day.
In electoral politics, Keyes twice ran as the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate from Maryland and was the GOP candidate who faced Barack Obama for a U.S. Senate seat from Illinois in 2004. Keyes was a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination in 1996, 2000 and 2008. He formally severed his Republican Party affiliation in April of 2008 before accepting the nomination from America’s Independent Party.

Holding a Ph.D. in government from Harvard, Keyes has hosted his own syndicated radio show as well as a program on MSNBC, “Alan Keyes is Making Sense.”
Keyes and his wife, Jocelyn, have three children.
“Alan Keyes was one of the very first commentators to contribute to WND back in the late 1990s,” said Joseph Farah, WorldNetDaily’s founder and CEO. “It’s so good to have him back as a regular columnist. He is brilliant, principled and a great communicator.”
Added WND commentary editor Ron Strom: “I remember watching Dr. Keyes debate Barack Obama on television during the 2004 Senate race in Illinois. Simply put, he cleaned Obama’s clock. Dr. Keyes is an extraordinary thinker and speaker – and we look forward to him once again sharing his wisdom and insight with WND readers on a regular basis.”
