    I have some good news. The Independent American Party won two partisan races in Nevada. Jackie Berg, the IAP candidate for County Clerk in Eureka County, received 54.10% of the vote beating a Republican and an Libertarian. And Cel Ochoa, the IAP candidate for constable in Searchlight received 54.93% in defeating a Republican opponent. The IAP also elected one of its own Bill Willkerson to the Elko Co. School Board in a non-partisan race.

    If that race had used IRV, I’m sure the Libertarian would’ve been re-elected with 52.9%. I just hope that now all the third parties think with their hearts and our democracy. 2008 seems a long way but let’s all start working now.
