Matt Bevin’s Libertarian opponent says the Kentucky election just proved his point

quote [ John Hicks told me that Kentucky’s election was a “sign that people are getting sick and tired of the two-party system.” ]

Efficient campaigning for ranked choice voting to say the least. libertarian party is bragging about splitting the vote and having a dem win.

official party statement.

In an ideal world, we elect Libertarian candidates and advance liberty. Failing that, we push mainstream candidates towards liberty to advance the cause.

But if we can’t do those things, we are always happy to split the vote in a way that causes delicious tears. Tonight there are plenty of delicious tears from Bevin supporters.

Had Matt Bevin not ditched his liberty Lt Governor for a Mitch McConnell picked anti liberty, corrupt running mate who has tried to eliminate Kentuckians jury trial rights, had Matt Bevin not presided over a huge sales tax increase, had Matt Bevin supported any of our key issues on criminal justice reform, marijuana legalization, expanded gaming, cutting taxes, or acted with the least bit of civility, we probably would not have run a candidate. Of course, he did the opposite. And here we are.

We split the vote. And we could not be more thrilled. If our friends in the major parties do not want this to happen again, they should think about passing ranked choice voting. And supporting our issues.

In the meantime, thank you to John Hicks, Ann Cormican, Kyle Hugenberg, Josh Gilpin and Kyle Sweeney for running. Your effort was appreciated.

For the Bevin supporters, your tears are delicious.

KY GOP: "No" on election security.
Also KY GOP: So much election fraud.

Libertarians: We're not just Republicans who smoke pot.
Also Libertarians: All the Republicans who smoke pot voted for us.
