Horse droppings. It's the Republican's job to get libertarian votes. There's plenty of room in the GOP for libertarians, just as there's a Christian wing and a RINO wing.
Bull-Pucky...Steve Daines didn’t have a serious Libertarian candidate and he won with a conservative message. Less government, more jobs was his message and it sold.
Rehberg and the republican governor candidate whose name I can’t recall we’re dry gulched by national democrats who put a lot of money into the Libertarian candidates to siphon about 5% of the vote from the republicans. Rehberg should have stayed in the house and let Daines beat Montana’s fat senator.
Granted, when republicans act conservative and are aggressively so, they do better than democratic-lite. However, there was a lot of democratic subterfuge regarding the libertarians in the 2012 elections in Montana.
There was also a lot of both parties suck in the decision process to vote libertarian.
