Third Party Watch was founded by Austin Cassidy in June of 2005. The vision was to provide a centralized news source and online community focused entirely on minor party politics.

The site launched as a simple news blog and within weeks began to draw more than 100 unique visitors per day. In addition to simply reporting the news, Third Party Watch began doing interviews with newsmakers, candidates, and party officials. Over the next few months a message board and peer-edited encyclopedia were added.

Traffic continued to increase and by November of 2005 the site was attracting as many as 600 unique visitors per day. Media outlets, such as the Press of Atlantic City, began to take notice.

With the promise of very active 2008 campaign season, the future looks very bright for Third Party Watch.

Thank you so much for visiting.
