"Thomas Peterson was born in Texas in 1946, the third of five sons. He graduated from Dartmouth College in 1968 (AB government) and attended Harvard Law School (1969?70). He is presently an associate member of the American Political Science Association and of the International Political Science Association. After his schooling, Mr. Peterson intended to pursue the life of a philosopher. But he felt the call to ministry and spent most of the next decades serving as a senior pastor, regional overseer, and international teacher. During his years of service and leadership in the church setting, Mr. Peterson?s political insights and awe for the republic the Founding Father?s originally designed remained constant as his motivation grew to see the fullness of its potential glory and justice benefit the American people. The Right to Nominate is the product of over a decade of research."
