The John & Ken talk radio show on KFI-AM 640 in the Los Angeles area has endorsed Dale Ogden, the Libertarian Party candidate for Governor, over Democrat Jerry Brown and Republican Meg Whitman. For those who are not familiar with John & Ken, they are an enormously influential team which dominates the afternoon rush hour airwaves. According to Wikipedia, John Kobylt and Ken Chiampou host the most popular local talk radio program in the United States, with a peak audience of one million listeners during their 2pm – 7pm time slot.
John and Ken tend to be crusading populists, and libertarians would find their views on various topics a mixed bag. But their vicious take-no-prisoners attacks on numerous incumbent (and aspiring) politicians are legendary. This endorsement will probably add tens of thousands of votes to Dale Ogden’s November total.
