Denver Post: In a first, Libertarian candidate in Colorado’s U.S. Senate race qualifies for major debate

Colorado’s U.S. Senate race begins in earnest this week with a major surprise: the Libertarian candidate will qualify for the first debate.

Lily Tang Williams, a Chinese immigrant and first-time candidate, will join Democratic incumbent Michael Bennet and Republican challenger Darryl Glenn at the Club 20 debate Saturday in Grand Junction after new voter registration figures showed an increase in Libertarian Party registration.

The debate serves as the unofficial kickoff of the fall campaign, and the inclusion of the Libertarian would mark the first time in recent memory that a third-party candidate participated in a major U.S. Senate debate in Colorado, said party chairman Jay North.

“I’m going to tell people that I offer a real third option,” Williams said in an interview. “The two-party duopoly in our country has not worked well.”

    The Colorado Libertarian Party is the first state Libertarian Party to have registration above 1% of a state’s total, except for the Alaska Libertarian Party. But the Alaska Libertarian Party constantly does voter registration, because usually it only remains on the ballot if its registration is at 3% of the last vote cast, so in a sense the Alaska Libertarian registration is somewhat artificial, whereas the Colorado data just occurred naturally, I assume.

    Fantastic news! I met her in Orlando. Not only is she a nice person, she’s a real hero of the libertarian movement.
