ALL IN ALL! Let All candidates who will appear on the November 4th ballot appear in All debates! This issue is bigger than the 2014 Alaska Gubernatorial Election. It effects all statewide races in Alaska. Governor, Lt. Governor, U.S. Senate and U.S. House. The media has a responsibility to accommodate all legitimate candidates. Every candidate who has taken the pains to appear on the ballot is a Legitimate candidate. Hold the media accountable. Contact them and demand that All in All be implemented from this time on by all media in Alaska.
10/18/14 An Open Letter to The People of Alaska,
It is unconscionable that two legally and fully vetted candidates for Alaska Governor, Libertarian Care Clift via her 16% of the primary vote and Alaska Constitution Party member J.R.Myers via his and Maria Rensel’s nearly 9,000 petition signatures, are both being excluded from the three televised debates the week prior to the election. Both candidates expressed shock and dismay. The response of Alaska Public Media has been the most disheartening. Clift and Myers have both been public media supporters in the past. Both campaigns will now urge their supporters to withdraw donations and advertising from those media outlets, including Alaska Public Media, which refuse to give equal airtime and consideration to all the qualified people’s candidates. Won’t you please join our efforts to call upon All Alaska Media to include All Four Candidates at All the following Debates!

“I had the same BS during my last campaign in 2008. I had debated Begich one-on-one maybe 4 times, he was gracious and engaging. But when Uncle Ted was finally able to get back to Alaska after his ill-gotten trial (and I never criticized him for this petty corruption charge), PBS excluded me.
Small parties and little money don’t count!
People ARE getting sick of this. New voices need to be heard.
It’s hard to call this “the two-party system” in this case because Walker is an independent candidate, but it is $$$ that calls the shots here. Your party is just a JV twerp without money.
And then the same bastards complain that “money. money, money fuels campaigns. Something should be done about it!”
How about getting all registered parties into the debates?
