FERGUSON: Wanted for District 8: A RINO or a DINO

This is the conclusion of my three-part series on my (likely quixotic) quest to get an alternative to Rep. Austin Scott on the ballot for the U.S. House race in Georgia District 8 next year. In last week’s installment, I described the needlessly difficult process for getting an independent or third party candidate on the ballot for U.S. House in our state, and I admitted that approach was unlikely to be successful given the current ballot-access laws. But I promised that I wasn’t giving up on my dream of seeing an independent-minded candidate oppose Mr. Government Shutdown in the District 8 race next year, and I said I’d have more to say on the topic this week. And so I do.
