The Distant Third Parties
Republican voters cast about 1.5 million votes in their primary for the Gov's seat, while Libertarian candidate Art Oliver racked up a seriously underwhelming 13,595.
Throw in American Independent and Peace and Freedom, and you get a total third-party vote of 66,000 votes out of about 2.5 million votes cast.
I think we should stop calling these ... um ... unique ... individuals third parties and start calling them what they are: fantasy voters. Their game is not much different that fantasy baseball.
