Libertarian Party Takes Credit for Barr's Defeat

The Libertarian Party has issued a press release and news article on their website, Medical marijuana ads play role in defeat of U.S. Rep. Bob Barr

Calling Barr the "worst drug warrior in Congress," the Party says,

"Over the past two weeks, Barr had been the target of a barrage of television ads produced by the Libertarian Party. The ads were run by Carole Ann Rand, the LP candidate for U.S. House in Georgia’s 7th Congressional district."

“Barr’s defeat is a victory for every American who believes that doctors and patients -- rather than politicians -- should be making medical decisions,” said Rand. “Like Babe Ruth pointing to a spot in the bleachers and hitting a home run, we pointed at our target and helped knock him out of Congress.”

"The campaign to bump Bob Barr was the first test of the Libertarian Party’s “Incumbent Killer Strategy,” which is targeting the worst drug warriors in Congress for defeat."

We say, more power to them and keep on fighting, we're behind you on this one.
