Third-party candidates face off in US debate
Presidential candidates from the Libertarian, Green, Constitution, and Justice parties hold their own debate in Chicago on Tuesday. Al Jazeera's John Hendren.
Sam Husseini, founder of VotePact.org, said third party candidates are getting very limited attention in the media, and are automatically written-off as nuisance candidates, even though they are raising legitimate issues. The debate was sponsored by the Free and Equal Elections Foundation.
In Chicago, it was no surprise that much of the mainstream media failed to show up as third party presidential candidates came to present an alternative vision for US domestic and foreign policy. From the Green Party to the Libertarian party, and from the Constitutional Party to the Justice party, both left and right were well represented.
