Senate candidates to debate
I received this e-mail (below) from the Illinois Libertarian Party. I'm happy to hear that their man Jerry Kohn (L) and candidate Al Franzen (I) will be included in the debate. Now the big papers will have to acknowledge that Kohn exists and is running for senate, right? Don't count on it. Watch, they'll be footnoted, if mentioned at all, as usual. Anyway, here goes:
Dear Fellow Libertarian: I'd like to encourage you to attend a debate between the U.S. Senatecandidates seeking to fill the Senate seat soon to be vacated by PeterFitzgerald (R), sponsored by the Illinois Forum. This is your chance to support Libertarian candidate for U.S. Senate JerryKohn as he goes head to head with the other Senate candidates. All fourcandidates have been invited to participate in the debate, including Jerry,Republican Alan Keyes, Democrat state Sen. Barack Obama andIndependent Albert Franzen
As far as I know, this is the first time an Illinois Libertarian candidate forstatewide office has ever been included in a General Election debate withmajor-party candidates and major media coverage. Do not miss this debate! The debate will take place from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM on Sunday Sept. 19,2004, at the Champaign City Council Chamber, 102 North Neal Street,Champaign, IL.
