Libertarian Candidate has strong showing!
The race for Georgia’s next Labor Commissioner has become more a 3 way race. The Libertarian, Will Costa, had a better then expected showing in the October 17the Atlanta Press Club debate. Post debate focus groups and internal polling have reviled that Will Costa has surprisingly high support from Democrats, Republicans as well as Libertarians and Independents.
Self proclaimed constitutional Republicans have expressed a high favorable score toward Costa. “Will is the only one seeking the Office of Labor Commissioner who really understands how an economy works” said one middle aged male from the Macon area.
Democratic voters outside of metro Atlanta felt more comfortable with Costa then they did with their own parties nominee. “Mr. Costa reminds me of the old Georgia Democrats who stood up for us in North Georgia” according to a lady in her late 60’s.
Independents all seemed to agree that both the Republican and Democrat were the “poster kids” for what is wrong with elected officials. “what is up with the he said he said bickering about girlfriends and minor ethics violations?”
When asked who was qualified to hold the Office, 67 percent of those asked felt that Costa was just as or more qualified to hold the Office of Labor Commissioner as compared to 65 percent for the Democrat and 64 percent for the Republican. When polled as to who should be the next Labor Commissioner, the Libertarian Will Costa was the clear choice with 52 percent of those who responded.
The survey consisted of a cross section of 42 Georgia voters who are likely vote in the November general election and viewed the Labor Commissioner debate.
