Now that the U.S. Senate debate between Democratic Senator Mark Warner and Republican candidate Ed Gillespie is over, Libertarian Robert Sarvis has released a video response on YouTube. The video is available at www.youtube.com/user/RobertSarvisVA.
Sarvis, who felt he should have been included in the debate, was not. The photo is one I took of him in July 2013 after the gubernatorial debate when he was outside the debate room protesting that he had not been included.
“Virginia voters lose out when candidates on the ballot are excluded from the debates,” Sarvis explained. “Mark Warner and Ed Gillespie don’t want to debate me because they both know I’m capable of attracting support from not only independents and libertarians but also from progressives and conservatives. Both are afraid to appear on a stage with someone who can point out their hypocrisy and demonstrate just how similar they are on a number of vital issues like cronyism, government surveillance, and military interventionism.”
The debate took place at the Greenbrier Resort located in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia.
