2013 VA Election for Governor
Tuesday, Nov 5, 2013 at 1:06 PM MST
On yesterday’s radio program, Glenn encouraged Virginia voters to do their homework and know who they are voting for in the contentious gubernatorial race. A three-way race is underway between the President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden backed Democrat, Terry McAuliffe, the TEA Party supported Republican, Ken Cuccinelli, and the candidate running on the libertarian line, Robert Sarvis.
Sarvis has amassed so much support and fractured the Republican, conservative, libertarian voting block so greatly, McAuliffe may very well come out on top in today’s election. While Glenn was certainly not opposed to third-party candidates, he warned his listeners in Virginia to understand who they were voting for before heading to the ballot boxes.
Glenn was primarily referring to Sarvis and some of the bizarre stances he has taken on issues in the past. From raising taxes to rejecting the Austrian-type economics, Sarvis does not sound like your proto-typical libertarian. And, as it turns out, it was a major Democratic Party benefactor and Obama campaign bundler, Joe Liemandt, who helped pay for professional petition circulators responsible for getting Sarvis on the ballot.
