3rd Party Debate To Focus On Economy

A debate is scheduled for Thursday, October 30th at 4:30 PM at the City Club of Cleveland, 850- Euclid Ave, Cleveland. C-Span will tape Thursday’s debate for broadcast later that night.

The forum, organized by the City Club will effectively break the media blackout on viable third party candidates running in the presidential race. Third party candidates in the debate include Independent Ralph Nader, the Green Party’s Cynthia McKinney and the Libertarian Party’s Bob Barr as well as Chuck Baldwin, Constitution party candidate.

The City Club of Cleveland debate, moderated by Dan Moulthrop of Cleveland’s PBS radio and television stations, will be streamed live by ideastream. The debate’s main focus will be on the economy.

“As long as Americans are denied the opportunity to hear from all the candidates we cannot pretend we have unbiased election coverage or fair elections,” said Constitution Party presidential candidate Chuck Baldwin.

Chuck Baldwin has spoken out against the federal government’s recent so-called “bailouts” in contrast to Senators Obama and McCain who support what Baldwin calls “a disastrous scheme against the American taxpayer.”

Baldwin, standard-bearer for the fast-growing Constitution Party has received the endorsement of former GOP presidential candidate Congressman Ron Paul.

Last month Paul urged all Americans to end the duopoly of the Republican and Democratic parties and vote for a third party candidate in November.
