WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — With the primary election just a couple of days awa, US Senate candidates for the Libertarian Party met for the third and final forum in Wilmington, but the turnout for the debate was less than stellar.
Few seats were filled at the Cape Fear Country Club for Sunday’s forum, but that didn’t stop candidates Tim D’annunzio and Sean Haugh from sitting down to a conversation-style debate.
D’annunzio says even though our political system gives third-party candidates a slim chance at election, their goal is to present a true alternative to the other parties. He says he is not discouraged by the turn out because the debate streamed live online.
“People these days are more interested in sitting in the comfort of their own home and being able to hear the candidates than they are interested in coming out to events like this,” D’annunzio said.
