Redpath to Liveblog Today

Although he was excluded from the Fairfax Chamber of Commerce debate hosted to showcase his opponents, Jim Gilmore and Mark Warner, the Libertarian nominee for the U.S. Senate from Virginia, Bill Redpath, will have an opportunity to interact with voters later today when he liveblogs on "The Shad Plank," the blog at the Hampton Roads Daily Press.

Redpath's liveblog event was postponed from Wednesday, giving readers two extra days to think about pertinent questions to pose to him.

Go to the Shad Plank at 1:00 p.m. to participate

Update: The Bill Redpath liveblog, moderated by Hugh Lessig of the Daily Press, took place between 1:00 and 2:00 p.m. You can watch a "replay" here (it's necessary to click on the "replay" button).

In fielding questions, Bill talked about the economy, the government's attempt to bail out Wall Street firms, free trade agreements, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, running with Bob Barr at the top of the ticket, Instant Runoff Voting (IRV), the challenges of getting on the ballot as a Libertarian, and other topics. The comments section of The Shad Plank is open for those who want to add their two-cents' worth.
