Jesse Johnson in West Virginia: Great campaign, but didn’t win

As I am a hopeless optimist, I have many big, exciting races I think the Green Party just, might win. One of them was Jesse Johnson. Well, he did not win for Governor of West Virginia. Though, he ran a good race and got a lot of great endorsements. It is frustrating that it is so difficult to get numbers on minor party candidates from the major media.

This just in about results: Ballot Access News says that FOX has the best results from third parties in regards to the presidential race. Will go look over there…eeek!…am I allowed to hang out at FOX??????

  1. I checked out Fox’s coverage and they did show percentages for “other” more prominently than on other networks. I think this is their love of graphics.
