Daniel T. Lewis was a Libertarian candidate for Governor of Tennessee in the 2014 elections.[1] Daniel Lewis lost the general election on November 4, 2014.

Prior to Lewis' nomination for governor at the 2014 Libertarian Party of Tennessee's annual convention, Lewis was nominated by the party in the 2012, 2010, 2008 and 2004 general elections. He ran for District 52 of the Tennessee House of Representatives in 2012 elections and for the state house seat representing District 53 in 2010.

Since the Libertarian Party is not a recognized political party in Tennessee, he appeared on the ballot as an Independent candidate in each election.[2]

Lewis ran for election to the office of Governor of Tennessee. The general election took place November 4, 2014.[1] He appeared on the ballot as an Independent candidate because there is no official Libertarian party in Tennessee. However, according to Ballot Access News, the Tennessee Libertarian Party filed suit on July 30, 2014, to designate Lewis as "Libertarian" on the ballot.[3]
