The fight goes on for Alex Snitker, Libertarian for U.S. Senate



Alex Snitker was shadowboxing three men the other day — as usual, from a distance that would not get him arrested.

The Libertarian candidate for U.S. Senate was standing with a microphone across the street from Orlando's ABC affiliate, where the three major candidates — Republican Marco Rubio, independent Charlie Crist and Democrat Kendrick Meek — were sparring in a live debate.

Outside, Snitker answered the same questions as the Big Three — only he had a volunteer watching the debate from home feed questions to him via cell phone.

Even in this political moment that hails the "citizen candidate" over the "career politician," Snitker, the office supply salesman-turned-Senatorial candidate, can't get much traction — no matter how much noise he makes. (story here)
