Breaking News: News 12 Long Island excludes Libertarian Michael McDermott from the televised debate held on October 23 between Democrat Steve Israel and Republican Steve Labate!
News 12 has decided which legitimate candidates on the ballot for the November 6 election the voters should hear. This means they will ony hear from Steve Israel (D) and Steve Labate (R). McDermott (LBT) who is also on the ballot after submitting over 4200 signatures to the Board of Elections on August 20 will not be heard.
The voters deserve to hear a debate between all of the qualified voters that have attained ballot status, not just the ones preferred by News 12. The Libertarian Party was formed in 1972 and is the third largest party in the country.
