Daniel Fishman, articulate and deftly steering out of the crossfire, advocated his Libertarian views of limited government, individual and state rights, fiscal conservatism, and his plan to “eliminate barriers” to employment by allowing businesses to hire their first three employees without all the red tape slowing down the process.

Fishman, perhaps sensing that many in the room were swayed, told voters to consider him, despite his long odds.

“Your vote counts and has to count for what you believe in. Vote for someone you like, vote your conscience,” he said. “If what I said appeals to you and you don’t vote for me, the message that gets sent is these ideals appeal to nobody.”
