Sun rises in south: WNJ actually covers Libertarian candidate Wendy Jones

Credit James Fisher of the WNJ with including Wendy Jones in his coverage of the 6th Senate race:

Jones, 53, of Milton, is a school bus driver and volunteer mentor at an elementary school. It’s an uphill battle – Libertarians hold no statewide offices, and campaign finance figures show her race is nearly expense-free. Jones has joined the other candidates at several public forums and made the case for her candidacy of limited government, entrepreneurship and gun rights. On the campaign trail, she tells voters too many manufacturing jobs have fled the state, pointing out that even the state’s license plates are imported. 
“Delaware needs to focus on Delaware,” she said at a candidates’ forum. “Money needs to stay here.”

So, you're now such a blind Libertarian partisan that you're supporting this nut-case? Perhaps you should go back and read the post that you wrote about her a few years back:

C'mon, Steve!

I know it is comforting to not be involved in politics, so you can keep all your "principles" all pristine without making any positive changes whatever.

And you are below your usual reading comprehension.

My case here is for the WNJ to actually cover third parties. If they want to call anybody a nutcase that's fine with me. I want coverage--responsible coverage--rather than silence.

That's so difficult for you to understand, why?

Writing about Wendy Jones other than to point out that she is utterly unqualified for public office is a waste of ink and electrons, regardless of what party she is in.

You have essentially said so in the above referenced post. Nevertheless, you have continued to promote her and solicit donations, like you did here:

Steve, you were right the first time about Jones. You're irrelevant attacks on me don't change that.

"Writing about Wendy Jones other than to point out that she is utterly unqualified for public office is a waste of ink and electrons, regardless of what party she is in."

That is true of 95% of our current elected officials nationwide, and 99% of the candidates. If you are so fair and nonpartisan, why don't we see you railing against people of other party affiliations, such as Democrat & Green
