In an email received by IPR Gary Johnson 2012 State Director for Delaware Steven Newton reports:
It is bad enough when the Presidential Debate Commission attempts to stifle political discourse by potentially excluding Gary Johnson, but now Delaware has its own debate controversy.
Ralph Begleiter (formerly of CNN) is the Director of the University of Delaware Center for Political Communication, which is co-hosting the candidate debates for statewide offices. Citing the Pew Center’s Debate Standards Project, Mr. Begleiter has announced inclusion rules that will eliminate all Libertarian, Green, and Independent candidates from the debate.
