From Delaware Libertarian:
By the numbers, Michael Munger has a lot of nerve asking for a microphone at gubernatorial debates.
Numbers of registered voters in North Carolina, that is.
Democrats: 2.6 million.
Republicans: 1.9 million.
But Munger, the Libertarian Party’s candidate for governor, deserves a place with Democrat Beverly Perdue and Republican Pat McCrory anyway.
The Libertarian Party’s roll of voters, all four of them, is comically low because North Carolina didn’t recognize it until a few weeks ago. The party qualified by submitting petitions signed by more than 100,000 citizens and now is entitled to place candidates on the ballot in November. Before then, people who held Libertarian ideas couldn’t register as Libertarians. Some were among the 1.2 million North Carolinians registered as unaffiliated.
