It seems that the local media outlet has once again taken it upon themselves to decided who is, and is not, “electable”
The is par for the course for said media outlet, in 2012 WPRI famously shut Rhode Island second district congressional candidate Abel Collins out of the debates.
While I agree that Mr. Giroux is a bit of a dark horse candidate, the average voter suffers from an ever increasing loss of faith in government, and many people may find the idea of a concerned citizen actually seeking public office to be quite refreshing.
Apparently, WPRI isn’t impressed.
This is not a Democrat v. Republican v. Libertarian v. Independent issue, this is an issue of fairness in our democracy, and people of every political ilk should be concerned.
Let Todd Giroux Debate!
