Paulie asks Warren Redlich, Kristin Davis to debate before LPNY convention; asks Davis for interview or Q & A with IPR readers

Slightly edited version of email sent several days ago to the Davis and Redlich campaigns (so far no response):

LNC alternate Scott Lieberman, Kristin Davis and supporters to meet in New York

Would anyone who was there let us know more about what was asked and what was answered? Any video, audio, transcripts or reports of the meeting available?

I really do want to get IPR to help get Kristin Davis and Warren Redlich (both seeking the Libertarian nomination for Governor of New York) into some kind of pre-convention debate, preferably one that can be read/viewed/listened to here.

Failing that, I would love to see us get Ms. Davis on record with an interview, or better yet a Q&A with our readers.

Both would be even better.

(I’ve also filled out the media request form at Kristin Davis’ campaign website and asked in IPR comments on previous posts, but have not been able to get a hold of anyone on Davis’ campaign).

    Want to see a Kristin Davis issue Q and A ? Catch her interview on WNBC in NYC on-line. Or her profile at the Daily Caller. Or the NY Times.

    Redlich? Cant see to find any stories on him.

    If you are talking about the meeting arranged at O’Grady’s Bar on April 12, 2010, Warren Redlich did not come. Kristin Davis and Roger Stone came and answered all our questions but the reception was mixed.

    If you are talking about the debate that was planned for two days later, Warren Redlich did not come to that one either. Kristin Davis came but she could not stay because she had a publicity appearance elsewhere an hour later. She answered all our questions and seemed like a nice and personable lady. I do not think that she has much support but she will probably get some votes.

    I was the only candidate there who was prepared to debate but a debate could not be held because there was nobody for me to debate with.

    Redlich is a nice guy. A schlepper. A meshkeit. A mesuganah. A certain loser.

    Boring. Balding. Loser

    Davis is hot and get’s big media coverage.

    The LP will nominate her or get 10,000 votes and fall short.

    I’m available.

    Thanks, Warren!

    Perhaps a formal debate challenge from you would at least elicit a response from the Davis campaign. My emails, articles, post comments and filling out the form on their website have not.

    If you send IPR a statement of debate challenge, I’ll post it as soon as I see it online (I don’t always get online every day, however). If you send it to contact.ipr@gmail.com I hope some of our other writers would post it in a timely manner if I am not there at that time. I realize the time to get this done is short.

    I’d like to do a Q & A with you, too, but I don’t have questions that readily leap to mind as I have with Ms. Davis. I’d welcome some from anyone reading. For that matter, if you have questions you want to answer, feel free to write both the questions and answers. I’ll try to think of some, too.

    I appreciate you taking time out to stop by here and letting us know about your availaibility.

    I’ve seen most of those. None that I have seen so far address some of the specific questions I would like to ask. I really liked the article/interview in the Daily Caller, though. Still, the range of topics they cover don’t include some that some IPR readers — far more so than the general public — might find interesting.

    And none of these Q & As involve a candidate debate that would allow anyone to compare Davis and Redlich head to head prior to the convention. And I mean that in the most Beavis-and-Butthead-proof way possible.

    Redlich? Cant see to find any stories on him.

    Besides IPR, includes Newsday, WRGB, Albany Times Union, Auburn Citizen, WPIX-11 TV, Buffalso News, Troy Record, Queens Chronicle, Adirondack Daily Enterprise, and Long Island Business News.

    I realize this is less impressive than Ms. Davis’ media resume, but media resume is only one of the factors that LPNY delegates consider.

    You won’t be able to do anything unless you get the nomination first.

    Except for doing ballot access for the Personal Freedom Party, of course.

    But that brings up another question: has anyone with practical experience on doing state party ballot access, especially in NY state, examined and provided feedback on your ballot access plan?

    If you or anyone else who was there can let us know what some (better yet all!) of the questions and answers were, I would sure appreciate it.

    Didn’t know about that one. I wish I had.

    And I already knew he was not going to the O’Grady’s event.

    I don’t think so.

    Whoever the LP nominates is likely to do better than usual because Cuomo is likely to maintain a very lopsided lead all the way to election day in November, and the climate is excellent for the Libertarian message, especially after the Ron Paul campaign has made it – and the L-word – more popular.

    Redlich’s status as an elected official – albeit a local one – will cause at least some voters to take him more seriously than they do some other LP nominees.

    His association with the Ron Paul campaign will draw in some votes, and it’s possible that the spread of new technology will make it somewhat easier to get the message out than it was 4, 8 or more years ago.

    I think he will be in some debates for the Republican gubernatorial primary, and although he is rather unlikely to win the Republican nomination, it will raise his name/issue recognition.

    So, 50k votes would be possible, although far from guaranteed. My prediction would be closer to 50k than 10k even if he does fall short.

    And as mentioned, the nomination will depend in large part on the types of questions I would like to ask. Whether you consider that an important consideration is up to you.

    On April 12 I was in Buffalo speaking to 1500 people at a Tea Party. Seemed like a better use of time compared to an event with maybe 50 libertarians. I had been invited to the Buffalo event, and accepted, long before the Manhattan libertarian event was scheduled.

    In the March, Siena polled me at 3-4% on the LP line. That’s about 150,000 votes.
