According to the Houston Chronicle (Texas’ largest newspaper), she just might be. An excerpt:
The real potential for Glass is that her message of stark government downsizing will steal votes from Perry.
In the 1990 governor’s race, where many voters were disgusted with the Republican candidates, Libertarian Jeff Daiell won almost 4 percent of the ballots. Daiell received enough votes to have given Republican Clayton Williams a victory over Democrat Ann Richards.
Daiell, who sought the Libertarian nomination this year, but lost to Glass, said he believes she has an opportunity to strike a nerve.
“I believe that a combination of voter frustration with both Beltway parties and increased acceptance of the Libertarian Party could well mean that the Libertarian Party breaks the 5 percent mark in the race for governor and determines the winner,” Daiell said.
