Fishman a factor in race

Votes for Libertarian could decide 6th District election between Tierney, Tisei

(Continued)

“What Fishman himself says, I think, is very true: He’s not running to hurt or help anyone, he’s running to express a message. And we don’t know if that benefits or detracts from any candidate; he may appeal to a diverse set of voters,” Robison said.

“He and Congressman Tierney disagree on a number of issues, but we certainly respect his point of view, which he has expressed very passionately.”

Moore, Tisei’s campaign manager, welcomed the Libertarian.

“With all respect to Fishman, it takes a long time and a lot of effort to build an organization and a structure to turn out the vote,” Moore said, “but I love the fact that he’s in the mix. It’s democracy.”
