In our state, we have the top two primary system. That means that it is possible that when the primary is over, you do not have a Republican and Democrat candidate (which is what a primary is for), but instead, you have two people from the same party. The primary for Lt. Governor ended with two Democrats who will be on the November ballot – one is quite liberal (Heck) and the other is extremely progressive (Liias).
Joshua Freed ran for Governor, but Culp won that nomination, so Freed is now able to run as a write-in for Lt. Gov, giving us a Republican option. It is certainly possible to do, because the two Democrats will likely split their votes, and Freed would only have to get about 40%. The drawback is that we have to get the word out, so please pass on the info.
