Libertarian trying to shake up Va. governor's race gets tough on top candidates | Fox News:

August 10, 2013 - "Robert Sarvis, the Libertarian Party candidate in the Virginia gubernatorial race, knows he’s a long shot to win. That’s typical for a third-party candidate going against a Democrat, a Republican and the well-funded operations that support them.

"Yet Sarvis is hoping to ride the country’s recent wave of Libertarian enthusiasm long enough to at least shake up a race in which voters are showing unfavorable opinions for Democratic nominee Terry McAuliffe and Republican nominee Ken Cuccinelli....

"He accuses both gubernatorial candidates of economic and social 'engineering' in which they pick winners and losers based upon their views and those of their respective political party.

"He argues personal and economic freedoms 'cannot be separated out' and points out that Cuccinelli supports the coal industry while McAuliffe touts green energy.... 'Instead of trying to free business from government, they are picking and choosing which industries they like better,' he told on Saturday....
