Third party candidates impressive in race for the 46th Congressional District

I watched the debate between Republican Congressman Dana Rohrabacher and his three opponents the other day.  I had heard about his Democratic opponent, Debbie Cook.  But I was not familiar with the other candidates, Libertarian Ernst Gasteiger and Green Party nominee Thomas Lash.

If anything, Gasteiger and Lash were far more impressive than Cook, who appeared to be reading from notes.  Gasteigher and Lash knew what they wanted to say and they tore into Rohrabacher like a pair of well-spoken pit bulls.  It was awesome to watch.

So who are these guys?

Lash is a teacher with a Masters in Education.  He knows his stuff.  HIs big issues are stopping our current wars; halting off-shore oil drilling and healthcare.  You may read more about his issues at this link.

Gasteiger works as a Production Manager at a manufacturing company.  He is a past business owner.  His big issues are balancing our federal budget, reducing government and restoring privacy.  You may read more about his positions at this link.
