Bradley Drops Senate Bid, Endorses Snitker
U.S. Senate candidate Dennis F. Bradley announces that he is dropping out of the race and supporting Alexander Snitker, the Libertarian candidate.
By: Snitker for Senate 2010
Bradley, a decorated veteran and businessman, expressed concern over splitting the third-party vote as the reason for his decision. “I entered the race without knowing that we, the people, had a viable candidate in Alex,” said Bradley in a letter to his former political rival.
Snitker thanked Bradley for his endorsement, and praised him as “a patriot and defender of the Constitution.”
With the growing public anger focused at both the Democrat and Republican parties, many political pundits think that third party candidates have a greater chance at upsets in key races this November. Libertarians are the third largest political party in the U.S., and their ranks have been growing as a result of the tea party movement.
Snitker's grass-roots campaign has been able to turn out significant numbers of supporters at recent campaign stops. In February, Snitker shocked observers by placing second to Marco Rubio in a major tea party straw poll, defeating both Charlie Crist and Democrat front-runner Kendrick Meek.
Snitker, a 34-year-old former Marine, is regarded by many as being the most viable third-party candidate in the race for Florida's Senate seat. His platform of auditing the Federal Reserve, the Fair Tax, and a non-interventionist foreign policy appear to be gaining broader appeal than they had just one election cycle ago. Judging by recent attacks on him from the Republican blogsosphere, it seems the major party players have taken notice.
