INDEPENDENT CANDIDATES DISRUPT US SENATE FIGHT FOR MAJORITY

NATIONAL MEDIA EXAMINES CONSEQUENCES OF KANSAS AND SOUTH DAKOTA MID-TERMS

Washington, DC – The national media is taking notice of mid-term Senate races where independent candidates are disrupting major party nominees.  The Atlantic, CBS, Huffington Post, NBC, NY Times, and Washington Post all report that frustrated voters are increasingly turning to centrist candidates that can set aside partisan politics to focus on solving problems.

  • Jonathan Marin, NY Times, writes -- “In an election year shaped by voter anger toward the political establishment, the outcome of an unusually large number of close Senate and governor’s races could be determined by the outsize role of third-party candidates.” [Long Shots Loom as Spoilers in Tight November Races Across Nation, 9/29/14]

 

Campaigning on a commitment to drive progress on issues of critical importance to the American people, these candidates are promoting to their freedom from major party influences. As a result, a few are surging in the polls as front-runners and serious contenders. This has the major party candidates on their heels.

Regional media is taking note as well reporting the number of moderate voters is on the rise due to dissatisfaction with the major parties.

  • Chapman Rackaway states in The Atlantic -- "You just have the sense—I see it every time I talk to people—that politics is broken. When someone reinforces that, saying, 'Yes, both parties are the problem,' that really resonates with people right now." not supported
