Score one for the Iowa LP.
Local candidate for Iowa House District 66 Brett Blanchfield was on a radio program on the 18th and got some pretty good coverage. They went into detail on his issues and he gave at least as strong a performance as the rest of the candidates, if not stronger.
There’s not really a soundbite that neatly wraps everything up regarding Blanchfield, so just go read the article at the Des Moines Register.
It’s nice to see multipartisan coverage that actually covers everyone equally. Even when we make it to debates or candidate forums, often the media writeups about it just focus on the major party candidates and then have a token throwaway paragraph or two about those cute Libertarians that got to play politics with the big boys for one day or whateverthefuck.
So kudos to Blanchfield and kudos to the Des Moines Register, and kudos to KWQW and J. Michael McKoy for inviting the Libertarian and giving him equal time.
