Jaimes Brown Colorado gubernatorial candidate kept off debate

Another example of candidates not being allowed to debate - this time in Colorado:

The Colorado Libertarian candidate for governor wasn't invited to a Channel 12 gubernatorial debate on September 10.

He says he found out about the debate in a Denver Post article after the event had been taped.

And he's not optimistic that he'll be invited to participate in a series of nine more debates scheduled to take place in the coming months between Democratic candidate John Hickenlooper and Republican candidate Dan Maes.

"A credible poll would list all the candidates who will appear on the ballot. A credible debate would invite all the candidates who will appear on the ballot," he wrote Friday to Channel 12 debate co-sponsors, Colorado Public Television and CBS.

"I shouldn't have to fight to be included in polls or debates. Americans are going to have to make some hard decisions about what we want and decide if we really want to solve our problems and get back on track toward prosperity."
