2 Houston Libertarians Surge in Popularity on KHOU Website

Videos featuring Kathie Glass, Libertarian candidate for Texas Governor, and Bob Townsend, Libertarian candidate for U.S. Congressional Dist. 7, have surged in viewership on KHOU Channel 11’s website, making them the two most watched videos on the site.

Glass, whose video comes second to Townsend, advocates for border control and getting “our fiscal house in order,” while appealing to disaffected Perry and White voters.

Meanwhile, Townsend takes a hard line against the status quo, who will increase the size and scope of government and trample on the sovereign and Constitutional rights of Texans.

According to a recent Texas Tribune poll, Glass garnered 8 percent support among those polled (797 persons). The poll, taken before an October 19 debate between Glass, Democratic candidate Bill White, and Green Party candidate Deb Shafto, does not reflect what the campaign maintains is an even higher base of support.

Gov. Rick Perry did not appear at the debate, or any debate this election.

Townsend, meanwhile, will face Republican incumbent Rep. John Culberson.

Texas Libertario proudly supports and endorses the Harris County and statewide Libertarian Party ticket, including Kathie Glass for Governor and Bob Townsend for U.S. Congress, Dist. 7.
