A Libertarian Party activist is the first third-party candidate to enter the Pennsylvania governor's race.
Colorado Republicans on Monday launched their bid to undo a new elections law that allows same-day registration, saying they're still not convinced the change isn't a recipe for possible voting fraud.
Inquiring minds want to know: who do the nation's esteemed lawmakers work for? It looks like the freewheeling group works for nobody. The vast majority of Americans — 90 percent — say elected officials in Washington behave "like they don't have a boss."
The days following an election are spent reflecting on the lessons drawn from what went wrong and what went right. For Virginia Republicans, not much went right. For Democrats, just enough went right to win.
Sen. Rand Paul, Kentucky Republican, is often described as both a tea party member and a libertarian, but it turns out that most libertarians aren't tea partyers.
Apart from death and taxes, few things in life are certain. But one of them is that third-party candidates nearly always lose. Sometimes a third-party candidate can be a positive influence in the race, and sometimes not. Robert Sarvis, the candidate of the Libertarian Party, can only contribute to the prospects of Terry McAuliffe, the Democratic nominee.
The Libertarian Party candidate for governor in Virginia is upset because he won't be invited to participate in a debate at Virginia Tech later this month. Fans of smaller government can feel relieved, because all that Robert Sarvis can accomplish by his futile run is to take enough votes away from Ken Cuccinelli, the conservative, to lose to Terry McAuliffe, a big-government liberal.
The federal government shutdown has seen Democrat Terry McAuliffe pad his lead in the Virginia governor's race against Republican Attorney General Kenneth T. Cuccinelli II, whose favorability rating in one new poll is lower than Sen. Ted Cruz, the Texas Republican who has become the principal face of the congressional impasse.
"The nation is looking for a change in leadership. Many Americans wake up every day wondering if we are descending rather than ascending as a nation. And most of our citizens want to rally behind hopeful alternatives to our current path," American Conservative Union Chairman Al Cardenas tells Inside the Beltway.
"We support the maintenance of a sufficient military to defend the United States against aggression. The United States should both avoid entangling alliances and abandon its attempts to act as policeman for the world," states the Libertarian Party in its bedrock platform statement.
A poll released Tuesday suggests that Democrat Terry McAuliffe and Republican Kenneth T. Cuccinelli II have lost support since January and the number of undecided voters in Virginia is climbing modestly — a signal, pollsters say, that respondents might be dissatisfied with their options in the governor's race.
"We've created a 'gun-free zone,' a killing zone, for the sickest criminals on the face of the Earth," says R. Lee Wrights, vice chairman of the Libertarian Party, in the aftermath of the Newtown, Conn., killings. "And we've made the children of this country the victims."
Eric Dondero refuses to speak to his brother. Not on Thanksgiving. Not over the holiday season. Not now, not ever. The reason? Mr. Dondero's brother, Alex, is a Democrat.
Despite the vast ideological landscapes and political freedoms that set the United States apart from much of world, the 2012 presidential election has been, like so many American elections of the past 150 years, ultimately a two-party contest.
He still doesn't get much attention from the mainstream media, but Libertarian presidential candidate Gary E. Johnson could be the key to who wins the White House on Tuesday — especially if he takes votes away from Barack Obama or Mitt Romney in Ohio or Colorado.
