Libertarian Sean Haugh is a major factor in the U.S. Senate race in North Carolina and cannot be ignored!
According to recent poll numbers, incumbent Democrat Kay Hagan has 46 percent of votes and Republican challenger Thom Tillis has 43 percent, with a 4-percent margin of error. But, Haugh is polling at 7 percent. The media and conservative news sites like the DailyCaller and Breitbart are calling Haugh a “spoiler candidate.”
Haugh scoffs at that idea.
He’s not there to spoil anyone’s election. He’s there to provide a much-need Libertarian voice and option. “A vote for me is a vote for me. Period,” said Haugh in one of his YouTube videos.
Haugh told the Washington Post he was motivated to run against Hagan and Tillis because he “couldn’t stand the idea of walking into the voting booth and just seeing the Democrat and the Republican on the ballot.”
“This whole ‘wasted vote’ and ‘spoiler’ nonsense depends on a false premise. It’s an arrogant notion to suggest that votes belong to my opponents and I am somehow taking votes from them,” he said.
“The truth is, your vote belongs to you. Not me, and not the Democrats or Republicans. Your vote is your way to tell the politicians what you want. You don’t owe it to anybody. We candidates have to earn it, every time,” he continued.
Haugh told Benswann.com that he was grateful to those who have worked for years to get Libertarian candidates on the ballot. Because of their hard work Haugh now has the freedom to focus on being himself and put out his message. “I have a huge opportunity here to smash all records. I’m standing on the shoulders of lots of people who have worked so hard to get us to this point,” he said.
