Andrew Richard Groff is the 2012 Green party candidate for the Delaware seat in the United States Senate; he has been endorsed by the Libertarian Party, which does not have a candidate for the Delaware US Senate seat. Groff is the owner of a computer consulting firm targeting small businesses. He is also an adjunct professor of computer science at Delaware Technical Community College; however, this teaching role is not at the level required for listing on the school's academic personnel roster. In 2011, Groff was a member of the Occupy Delaware facilitator's committee.
Groff has indicated his opposition to "investing trillions in wars overseas", indicating he would rather see this money invested domestically to improve the United States economy. He has also indicated his belief that business' uncertainty about the future of the economy has stalled hiring and that the "government’s in the way" in this area of jobs growth.
Groff has also indicated his support for Planned Parenthood and his conviction that "Healthcare is a human right." Groff has also indicated his belief in the need for government regulation, blaming government for allowing corporations to pollute.
