A candidate on the ballot tomorrow says he offers an alternative for voters who’ve had enough of both Republican Jim Talent and Democrat Claire McCaskill. Libertarian Frank Gilmour has been watching the developments in the Talent-McCaskill race; a tough, expensive Senate race that could determine whether Republicans keep control of the US Senate or lose it to Democrats Gilmour calls the race a waste of money. He says Talent and McCaskill are only bickering about each other. Gilmour complains that the campaign has ignored what he considers to be the biggest issue in the campaign; the growing national debt. Gilmour says the national debt has to be tackled by cutting spending to rein in annual deficits. He says Congress has to cut the budget to balance the budget. Gilmour says only when spending comes into alignment with the revenue the government receives will Congress be able to trim the national debt, which now exceeds $8.5 trillion. Gilmour is one of two so-called third party candidates on the ballot tomorrow. Progessive Party candidate, Lydia Lewis, also is on the ballot for US Senate.
