Indiana NewsCenter interview Don Schmidt today and WOWO used one of the soundbites. I do not remember the exact words; however, Don Schmidt basically said that two things hurt himself and Councilman Crawford:
1. He said the Kelty did poorly enough where it brought the Republican ticket down.
2. He said the the 900# guerilla in the race was the Libertarian Party.
Don Schmidt told them that he and John Crawford figure they lost due to Libertarians...
I imagine the Republican Party will pay a lot more attention to the Libertarian Party over the next couple of years. The local Libertarian Party has a long ways to go to get a candidate elected; however, I feel that we can do it if we work hard and if we run candidates who are willing to work hard... (Think candidates who work as hard as Karen Goldner worked)
I would also like to add that our candidates did not take votes only from Republicans. We also took votes from Democrats. Libertarians can have appeal to both Republicans and Democrats.
