Shane, Shane. How little we knew ye. You are the Libertarian, we invited you in for an interview, and you proved that you were simply an earnest college student who had initially been recruited by the third party to run for the state House before Libertarian officials realized you were too young to meet the minimum requirements. Still, we enjoyed hearing about your backup plan of hitting the Alaskan fishing boat circuit if you weren’t elected, and your stories of rallying college buddies to wave signs and pool campus copier credits for printing fliers.
Alas, in the end, we’re afraid we have to go with the seasoned environmental activist, Democrat Elise Jones, who seems to have gotten the endorsement of every single politician in the Rocky Mountain region and is not just incredibly sharp, but is thoughtful and politically savvy.
