"Seventeen Libertarians are running for Senate.. They're running in three of the five most "toss-up" states (Nevada, Indiana, and Missouri), and they're running in three other races that at least one forecaster has rated a coinflip (Texas, Montana, and New Jersey). With the stakes of Senate control so high—Supreme Court confirmations! impeachment trials!—the opportunities to scream "SPOILER!" may soon abound... And yet even strong Libertarian candidates in close races are routinely not being polled."

"The complaint filed Monday with the Federal Election Commission argues because Sen. Ted Cruz is not taking part, and O’Rourke is the sole participant, CNN cannot claim the event as a debate. Also, he said the hourlong format with O'Rourke is not typical news coverage given to other candidates.
