Recently Republican candidate for Illinois governor Judy Baar Topinka, a liberal, stated that people voting for the third party candidate that will be on the ballot, Rich Whitney (Green Party), would "waste their vote".
As is noted in the 2006 endorsement list, the Conservative President 2008 does not support any of the candidates that will be on the ballot in Illinois, we support write in candidate Randy Stufflebeam. Conservative President 2008 also supports another non-major party, Timm Knibbs (Concerned Citizen's Party) who is running for US Senate in Connecticut.
When does a person waste their vote? When that person chooses to vote for a candidate that is the lesser of two (or more) evils, and in the case of the Illinois governor's election Judy Baar Topinka and Democrat Rod Blagojevich come in a tie with Green Rich Whitney coming in a close third.
