Thanks to all of you who contributed time, energy, money, and votes to this
effort! Now we're heading for the big time...
PS Keep those contributions coming - money gets the message out, and my
peace-and-truth message can WIN in a three-way race with the other two guys
splitting the pro-war vote.
3rd District Winner Kevin Barrett
Thanks Olson, Targets "Pro-War" Kind
Kevin Barrett, the apparent winner of the 3rd District Libertarian
congressional primary with over 60% of the vote, thanked opponent Ben Olson for
what he called "a terrific campaign." "Ben Olson is a wonderful guy, and
I'm glad this campaign gave me a chance to get to know him," Barrett said. "Our
debate on Captain Soma's riverboat was a memorable experience. I have nothing
but good things to say about him. I hope to stay in touch with him, and I will
continue to work with him and his supporters in an attempt to rein in this
Barrett also thanked Governor Jesse Ventura for his last-minute
endorsement. "Next time I take on Hannity and O'Reilly, I want Jesse Ventura on
my tag-team," Barrett said. "Seriously, Jesse Ventura is the only true statesman
I see anywhere on today's political landscape, and I'm honored by his
endorsement. I hope he'll run for president and win in 2012."
Barrett cited the popular Libertarian mayor of Tomah, Ed Thompson, a
regular guest on Barrett's radio shows. "Ed Thompson said this primary was a
referendum on 9/11. I don't know if I'd go that far...but any landslide
victory for the 'conspiracy professor' Hannity and O'Reilly and the rest of the
controlled media love to beat up on is very good news for the 9/11 truth
Barrett added that he planned to hold incumbent Ron Kind responsible
for "consistently voting for a criminal war of aggression that has wrecked our
economy," and added that he had just sent the following email to Kind:
Dear Congressman Kind,
I hope you will be prepared to truthfully defend your pro-war votes, in
light of the recent announcement that thousands of Wisconsin guardsmen will soon
be sent to Iraq in the biggest call-up since World War II.
