An email from Joseph Buchman, a Libertarian running for Congress in Utah’s 1st congressional district:
The KSL/Deseret News Poll released today shows a 300 percent increase for Libertarian Joseph Geddes Buchman in just the last three days!According to their report, 12 percent of likely voters are voting for Buchman For Congress.Utah’s 1st Congressional District:Rob Bishop … 60%
Morgan Bowen … 27%
Joseph Geddes Buchman … 12%
Kirk Pearson … 2%
Undecided/Refuse … 8%
(margin of error +/- 5%)Just four days ago the Salt Lake Tribune Mason-Dixon poll indicated only 4 percent for Buchman.That’s a record-breaking, never-before-in-the-history of federal campaigns, 300 percent, 3-day increase!!!I’ve made history!If that trend had continued for the next three days, I could have won this thing.Unfortunately, it seems the Deseret News has published a typo.In addition to misspelling my name (Jeseph — it’s Joseph) as well as the name of our Attorney General Candidate (Anderw — it’s Andrew), the results of the KSL/Deseret news poll total 109 percent.Seems they could use a proofreader down there.Still, while 12 percent wouldn’t win the election, it would send a LOUD message to the media, the politicians in DC, and the voters of Utah that Liberty and Principle matter more than Party.
Radio ads are airing today and tomorrow in Rush and Glenn Beck (AM 570. XM-165 (Where I’ll be interviewed for three hours on Monday). Video ads are running in Park City this weekend. You can also download them and listen to all of them on my website www.BuchmanForCongress.com). Please spread the word, ask your freedom loving friends to vote Libertarian, email your favorite radio spot to all of them (they can vote Libertarian in every state in the US), and over the next 48 Hours — BE Paul Revere!(It’s really a ton of fun as well.)As for other media coverage . . .
I remain very disappointed not only with the Deseret News and Salt Lake Tribune coverage of my campain, with the NPR station in Logan for not inviting me to their debate (have been getting emails from people in Logan wanting to know why I wasn’t there), AND in the Park Record for their “Voter’s Guide” with only Republican Congressman Bishop and Democratic Morgan Bowen listed.I can almost understand the KSL, KUED and KBYU polling requirements for 5 to 15 percent, but it seems buying advertising space or time is a media prerequisite for gaining their news coverage.So I could really use a few more Paul Revere’s right now.So could all of our Libertarian Candidates. I hope you’ll be one. 48 hours is all we ask.JoeANDREW MCCULLOUGH FOR ATTORNEY GENERAL
