Magar Dispells Criticism

August 26, 2010

NEW IBERIA, LA—Kristian Magar, Ph.D., the Constitutional conservative candidate for Louisiana’s 3rd Congressional District, came out strongly against naysayers on Tuesday night at a meeting of the Greater New Orleans TEA Party.

Speaking to the group in Metaire, Magar was critical of certain media outlets and bloggers who have doubts about his campaign.

“They say I don’t have enough money and basically I can’t win,” Magar told the 60 in attendance. “I only need about 8,000 votes to make the runoff. I don’t see a need to raise and spend half-a-million dollars to secure 8,000 votes.”

Magar’s message of fiscal responsibility has been resonating among TEA-Partiers across the district and Tuesday night was no different. Aside from the uproarious applause he received when broke out his Ross Perot-like charts, the crowd laughed heartily when he reminded them that he “just ran a whole Congressional campaign on 40 grand.”

“His message is well-received everywhere we’ve been in the district,” said campaign manager Travis Taylor. “To say that he is not a viable candidate is completely false. We have distributed nearly every yard sign we purchased and the ones that haven’t been stolen by a guy in a silver Mercedes are proudly displayed in the yards of our Republican supporters in the third district, not just in empty lots. Of course he’s viable.”
Magar was quick to point to the lack of released polling data as evidence of his viability. “Why do you think they haven’t released any polls?” Magar asked the crowd. “If they were that far in the lead, they’d be shouting from the rooftops. But they’re not. That tells you something right there.”

But a lack of remaining campaign materials or polling data weren’t the only indicators of Magar’s support.

Following his speech, Magar held a town-hall-type forum, inviting the audience to ask him questions. A number of those questions began very similarly. “When you’re elected…” “The task before us is not impossible. It’s not insurmountable. All we need is 8,000 votes. Can each of you find 10 votes? Take 10 people to the polls?” Magar challenged his newest supporters.

“We need to vote for the best candidate, not the candidate the media tells us is most likely to win,” Magar continued his criticism of the media. “As one of my supporters said on Facebook, ‘Vote as if your life depends on it. Because it does.’”

Magar encourages the people on the 3rd district to vote on conviction, not media reports biased by money. “It’s time to stop voting for the lesser of two evils. It’s time to be a part of the solution,” Magar said. The GOP primary is Saturday.
