Latest Earned Media

KOLR10 News in Springfield interviewed me last week, and gave me 2 minutes for my answer to the question, "Why should SW Missouri voters vote for you?" Here's the answer from all three candidates:

Candidates for Missouri's 7th District Make Their Pitches to Voters

I don't know when the interview will be broadcast. It should be 5-10 minutes long.

Springfield talk radio host Nick Reed didn't like my pitch; or at least the first 10 seconds:

What message are Libertarians sending -

My feeling is he just needs to say something controversial-sounding to keep ratings up. By far the biggest argument I get is "You can't win; why should I waste my vote?" Libertarians always get this. Even from Republicans who have otherwise become slightly converted to the libertarian position on the issues. I think my answer was as persuasive as I can get in two minutes, and certainly had more passion than the other two candidates.

In this Congressional District, for a Libertarian to say, "Hey voters! We really can WIN this one!" is the mark of mental illness. Here are some numbers. My strategy is not to pretend. Absent some extraordinary scandal involving the Republican, or a Las Vegas casino owner backing a Libertarian with a million dollars, the Republican candidate does not even have to debate his opponents.

And probably won't.
