Hannah Nicollet ran for Governor of MN in 2014 with the Independence Party. She starting running for US Senate, until the gubernatorial candidate dropped out, and she switched races at the convention. Being a third party candidate is a tough job, when you have two major parties that don’t want you there to begin with. Rules for debate inclusion change. Calls go unreturned. You have to work twice as hard just to get noticed. As a defender of liberty, she looked to end the drug war in MN, repeal the corporate income tax, and to privately fund TCF Bank Stadium. Third party candidates bring up important issues that the major parties won’t touch. In his farewell address, George Washington warned us to stay away from the two party system. We should have listened.
