101-Year-Old Candidate Seeks 101 Votes

By    |   Tuesday, 04 November 2014 02:48 PM EST

Joe Newman, a write-in candidate for Congress from Florida, set a rather modest campaign goal: to get 101 votes.

That's because Joe Newman is 101 years old.

Newman is running in a solidly Republican district on Florida's Gulf Coast that extends south from Bradenton, Forward.com reports.

"At what age does a person become too old to think and reason?" he says on his website.

"At what age does a person no longer have a concern for society?"

Newman plans an election-night party at a pizza place in Sarasota.

He has already written his concession speech.

Newman, a retired accountant, and his wife were among the founders of the Logan Center, a school for developmentally disabled children.

His wife is deceased. Newman now lives with his girlfriend and her daughter.
