Libertarian candidate Sean Haugh wasn't invited to the U.S. Senate debate being aired tonight. But he's not upset. In fact, he won't even be listening.
“I'm going to spend the night doing something truly productive by showing up for my regular shift at work delivering pizzas,” he said in his latest YouTube video statement.
“Don't be fooled; they aren't talking to you tonight,” Haugh said of his opponents, Democrat Kay Hagan and Republican Thom Tillis. “Those two are auditioning for the political class over which one puts the best face on corporate special interest control of our government.”
Haugh said that if anyone wants to know what he thinks they should follow his campaign manger, Rachel Mills, on Twitter @ladyjade during the program.
“She speaks for me just fine,” he said.
Haugh has been invited to the debate scheduled in Wilmington Oct. 9 and sponsored by the League of Women Voters.
“I'm so grateful to the League for always being inclusive and respecting the true principles of democracy,” he said.
Eric Cable, Libertarian candidate for state House 104, is also producing a series of campaign videos explaining his position on the issues. Here is the latest episode:
Brad Hessel, state Libertarian Party executive director, took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge issued by his counterpart in the Democratic Party, Casey Mann. He then issued his own challenge to the candidates for U.S. Senate, Democrat Kay Hagan, Libertarian Sean Haugh, and Republican Thom Tillis.
