F#$%# Breitbart. They are disinfo.
I echo George and Joshua’s comments… meanwhile the keyboard commandos at Breitbart have dubbed Sarvis as the Antichrist… ok not really 😛 : http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/06/27/Libertarian-Candidate-Gets-on-Virginia-Senate-Ballot
What George said.
Best wishes to Rob Sarvis in Virginia!
Kshama Sawant ran for Washington State House before turning right around to run for City Council in Seattle and winning. There is logic in running back to back campaigns. Name recognition, after all, is the name of the game.
Bernie Sanders finally won & eventually became a U.S. Senator being a “perennial candidate”. It’s okay to keep running if you have a reason to beyond “I want to see my name on the ballot”.
I think it’s best to keep delivering the same message and not going away.
Paul Jones also made it in the 5th. Some candidates made it very narrowly. Some net yet known as far as I know. 9th is the only one I have heard that definitely did not.
Two runs in two years qualifies if followed up by another run soon after. I’m not saying he is not an attractive candidate. He should keep his powder dry and run again later to win in a winnable race.
Two runs is far from being a perennial candidate.
I hope he does well and then retires for a while. The last thing the LP needs is a Harold Stassen type perennial candidate. He could take a few years off and then come back and if Carla Howell’s latest letter is accurate, have a shot at winning office.
