    The article really only includes reactions from Gary Johnson, Stewart Alexander, and Jill Stein. The other parties or their candidates didn’t provide a response in time.

    Has Goode put up a statement yet? If not he is losing a huge opportunity. If he is trying to appeal to conservatives, he should know Obamacare is hugely unpopular among conservatives, and his silence is him losing a chance to garner more support.

    As the article author, I had received emailed press releases from Gary Johnson and Stewart Alexander, which is what gave me the idea for the article. I wanted all their reactions, so I went to both the party’s and candidate’s websites, checking the main pages and the ‘news’ or ‘ ‘press release’ sections where only Jill Stein had a posted reaction. The other parties/candidates didn’t have anything. Johnson and White have the best PR machines. The rest could take a lesson from how those two make it easy for independent media like myself and Examiner and Whiteout Press to help them with some coverage.
