Not much attention has been paid to Seventh District Congressman Roy Blunt's opponent in the November election, and I am not referring to the Democratic candidate Jack Truman.
Even the sparse coverage Truman has received, has been more than that of white supremacist Frazier Glenn Miller, who is running as a write-in candidate. I have no problem with that, even though Miller is profiled in a story posted Tuesday by the Associated Press.
It is a shame that a man like Miller with thoroughly discredited ideas receives coverage while a serious candidate such as Kevin Craig, who is running on the Libertarian ticket, continues to campaign in anonymity.
While media outlets are not obligated to provide free publicity to campaigns, it would be nice if newspapers devoted more space to the discussion of ideas that third parties such as the Libertarians add to the political marketplace. Our history tells us that many commonly accepted ideas proffered by the Republicans and the Democrats originally came from third-party and independent candidates.
