As Wes Benedict pointed out in a recent message, we had two U.S. Senate campaigns this year that were unusually successful, in terms of vote percentages. Rebecca Sink-Burris received 5.3% of the vote in Indiana, while yours truly got 4.7% in Arizona. This is the first time in ten years that any Libertarian Senate candidate […]

FOX-11 in Tucson ran this three-minute statement on Sunday; they offered every candidate for a major office the opportunity to do this, but surprisingly few took advantage of it! The media in Arizona give Libertarians better coverage than in most states, partly because we’ve earned it! While you’re on their website, check out the statements […]
I was interviewed by three Tucson area TV stations in the last four days: KUAT-6 hosted a three-way “debate” on Thursday; KGUN-9 interviewed me at a Tea Party event in Sonoita on Saturday, and KMSB-11 taped a short interview that will air on 10/31. Overall, media coverage of my U.S. Senate campaign has been […]
Two very informal, unscientific straw polls taken in the last week indicate that my campaign for U.S. Senate has the potential to take off in a big way if we can come up with significant funding. In the online survey taken by KTVK-3 one week ago, during and following the four-way televised debate, 53% of […]
A four-way debate between Sen. John McCain, Libertarian David Nolan and a couple of other guys will be televised LIVE on KTVK-3 in Phoenix tomorrow evening at 6:00 pm. It will also be carried on KTTU-3 in Tucson. If you live outside those two cities, it will be streamed online at http://www.azfamily.com/ Note: AZ does […]
Earlier this week I did a three-day campaign swing through central and northern Arizona. I recorded a 3-minute campaign message at KTVK in Phoenix, and spoke to Tea Party groups in Flagstaff and Scottsdale. This Sunday, I will take part in a live, televised debate that will include all four U.S. Senate candidates. It should […]
KTVK-3TV in Phoenix has scheduled a debate that will include all four of Arizona’s ballot-qualified U.S. Senate candidates: John McCain, Rodney Glassman, Jerry Joslyn and myself. It will run without commercial interruption from 6pm to 7pm on Sunday, Sept. 26. This is most likely the only debate that McCain will agree to participate in. If […]
Perhaps more than any other contest this year, the battle for the seat currently held by John McCain offers an opportunity to contrast the ideas of liberty with the big-government philosophy that now dominates the GOP. Arizona held its primary election on August 24, and the results are interesting, to say the least. On the […]
Last night I attended a rally for J.D. Hayworth, the right-wing Republican challenger to John McCain. I did so only because I was invited by his Southern Arizona Coordinator, and I wanted to see what kind of support he’s drawing, what their issues are, and so forth.
Sedona, Arizona is an upscale resort town about 80 miles north of Phoenix. Yesterday a reporter from the Sedona Times interviewed me about my U.S. Senate race. All things considered, it turned out pretty well.
How do we Libertarians most effectively allocate our limited resources? Suppose you have $100 to contribute to aiding the cause of liberty. How should you spend that $100? One obvious answer is to donate it to the Libertarian Party – at the national, state or local level. Another is to contribute to the campaigns of […]
In the past two days, my Arizona campaign for U.S. Senate has received coverage from two additional news media. First, an interview by Jesse Mathewson at Examiner.com, and then another interview by James Burns on American Freedom Radio. Both went well, and each provided an opportunity to spread libertarian ideas to the American people.
