Review Jounal letter

This is a letter that I wrote to the Review Journal. It was published on Wednesday.

On Sunday, June 13th, in Glenn Cook’s commentary titled, ‘Ten races will decide everything’, he mentions a third party candidate in only one race. This omission is glaring because the third party candidates will affect several races.

In the District 9 Senate race where I am running as an Independent American Party candidate, only 25,320 votes were cast. There are 37,927 voters in that district who are registered INA, LIB, or other. Since I am the only other candidate in that race, there is a very good chance that the voters registered NP, INA, and other will vote for me instead of one of the other candidates.

If you are going to examine political races, you should do it thoroughly and include 3rd party candidates in your analysis so that the voters have all the facts on which to base a decision.

This year many voters are disgruntled and may vote for the 3rd party candidates. In fact, the Independent American Party is the fastest growing party in Nevada.
