I was reading your comments about the party HQ forgetting about the rest of the LP ticket, and thought that you would be interested in my experience with Barr on this matter.
He was a guest on my hometown talk radio station, with a host who is actually sympthetic with a great deal of libertarianism. He introduced Barr as a "true conservative", a title that Barr did not object to. Then during his interview, Barr said that Republicans should support him because he would bring out voters who would support the rest of the candidates on the Republican ticket. No mention of the LP or of other candidates on the LP ticket.
The station was WBT in Charlotte, and the host was Keith Larson. Barr was also on their morning news, on which he was introduced as a "traditional Republican." Again, he gave no correction.
I wrote an email to the campaign, mentioning how damaging that exchange was to other LP candidates, candidates on whose support Barr depends.
I got no response.

And, here, if you're skeptical, is where you can find the 30-second clip of Barr's analysis of how his candidacy helps down-ticket GOPers.
Thanks, Bob. For nothing.
Well, maybe not nothing. This sort of proves my point that neither Bob Barr nor the LP apparently gives a rip about all those hundreds of Libertarians running in State and local elections.
