Third Parties in Congress: Props to Jon Murphy
By Art Carden
Last year, I offered to bet $100 against someone’s $20 that no third party candidate would win a seat in the House or Senate. This was in response to a Politico article touting “record demand for third party.”
This morning, Jon Murphy, an economist from ITR Economics, emailed me to remind me that he had taken up the bet and that he had lost. Pending transaction costs, the fund for the construction of the new Brock School of Business Building will be $20 richer.
Thanks, Jon, for taking the bet.
