Political Protest In The Valley

Sunday, January 06, 2008

Valley political activists are protesting the exclusion of a republican candidate from Sunday night's debate on Fox News Channel.

They gathered outside the local Fox affiliate to complain that Ron Paul wasn't included in the debate.

Paul has raised a huge amount of money from internet supporters and he got about 10% of the vote in the Iowa caucuses last week, including a win in one of the county caucuses.

Because of that performance, Paul's supporters say another candidate might have been a better choice to be left out of the debate.

"If they're going to exclude anybody, why not exclude Rudy Giuliani? He only garnered 3% of the vote. They've been telling you for over a year that he's the leader. Wouldn't you think a leader that spent over $5 million on advertising in Iowa would get more than 3% of the vote? The people have spoken and they prefer Ron Paul over Rudy Giuliani."

ABC News included Paul in its republican debate Saturday night.

But Dennis Kucinich filed a complaint with the FCC because this network left him out of the democratic debate.
