(from: Political Wire @ October 5, 2012, 05:26 PM)

Rick Santorum got philosophical when asked about Mitt Romney's pledge to cut off PBS funding, the Washington Post reports.

Said Santorum: "I've voted to kill Big Bird in the past. I have a record there that I have to disclose. That doesn't mean I don't like Big Bird. You can kill things and still like them, maybe to eat them, I don't know. That's probably that. Can we -- can we go back on that one?"

(from: Independent Political Report @ October 5, 2012, 04:55 PM)

Found at http://www.voterocky.org/. Note that there are quite a few states where they are still seeking qualified write-in status.

Anderson is behind Gary Johnson, Jill Stein and Virgil Goode in ballot access, but is the only one of those candidates participating or planning to participate in every forum with the other candidates known so far: A Democracy Now! counter-debate with Jill Stein this past Wednesday, a panel on the economy with Gary Johnson and Reform Party candidate Andre Barnett yesterday, and a Free and Equal debate on October 23 with Gary Johnson, Virgil Goode and Jill Stein.

Brian Irving: All Candidates Should Debate
(from: Independent Political Report @ October 5, 2012, 03:42 PM)

From Brian Irving for Congress. As an IPR writer, Brian is not publishing his own editorial per IPR policy, but submitted it to IPR as any other candidate or opinion writer would.


Republican Rep. Renee Ellmers is apparently unwilling to debate her Democratic opponent in the 2nd Congressional District, according to the News & Observer. Steve Wilkins told the newspaper that Ellmers has turned down an invitation to debate on WTVD-TV.

I feel your pain Mr. Wilkins. I believe all ballot-qualified candidates should agree to debate, anywhere and in any venue, and that the media has a duty and obligation to cover all candidates fairly and equally. I think all ballot-qualified candidates should be invited to debates by the sponsors and organizers.

Unfortunately, WTVD and WRAL apparently don’t believe that. I wasn’t invited to take part in the WTVD debate. Nor will WRAL allow me to tape a video for their online candidate guide, a service they?ve offered to the Republican and Democratic candidates.

I believe anyone in office, or seeking office, has a duty and responsibility to accept any and all invitations to speak to groups and especially to debate. Mrs. Ellmers herself has noted that she’s new to the district due to redistricting. That should make such personal contact even more important.

The model I’m using for my campaign is the same model I will use if elected, that of the citizen-servant envisioned by our nation’s founders when they wrote the Constitution.
