Libertarian Joins Democrat Gore, Reform Buchanan, Constitution Phillips, And Expected Others

(Washington, D.C.) Judicial Watch has been orally notified by Presidential Candidate Harry Browne of the Libertarian Party that he will be joining Democratic Party Presidential candidate Albert Gore, Jr., Reform Party Presidential Candidate Patrick J. Buchanan, Constitution Party Presidential Candidate Howard Phillips, and others expected to accept Judicial Watch's invitation to debate the issue: How To Restore Ethics To Government?

The debate, which will be held in prime time at 8 p.m. on Friday, October 20, 2000, in the spanking new, state-of-the-art amphitheater of the Ronald Reagan Building, is garnering widespread acclaim. Indeed, just yesterday, Republican Presidential Candidate George W. Bush, who is also expected to accept, reiterated that he is seriously considering debates held by interests other than the Presidential Debate Commission.

'Given the professed emphasis of the Bush Campaign on ethics, and its criticism of the Clinton-Gore Administration, how would it be if everyone else appeared for Judicial Watch's debate except the Republican Presidential candidate? It is obvious that George W. Bush will, therefore, accept Judicial Watch's invitation, and indeed the public-interest watchdog has been led to believe that this will occur,' stated Judicial Watch Chairman and General Counsel Larry Klayman.

'Judicial Watch is sponsoring this debate as an educational activity, in order that all Americans will understand how the Presidential candidates propose to handle the issue of government ethics and corruption, particularly in Washington,' added Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
