Let's pretend for a moment to take him seriously. He has raised a whopping $85,000 and spent $72,000. That means he has about $13,000 left to spend on statewide television ads during the final weeks of the campaign.
Oh - you haven't seen Wyllie's ads? That would be because there are none.
Wyllie is this cycle's Libertarian candidate. Some polls show him getting 10 percent or more of the vote in a three way contest with Republican Governor Rick Scott and Democrat Charlie Crist.
Now let's understand that 10 percent. These folks would tell pollsters they are voting for a cat before they vote for Scott or Crist. They do not know or care about Wyllie. They are simply poll protesting.
Many of these same voters are just as likely to vote for Scott or Crist on election day. A few may actually vote for Willie or the other seven write-in/no party candidates who qualified to run for governor.
Here's a Wyllie fun fact:
On July 4, 2011, Wyllie sent a letter to all of Florida’s 67 sheriffs urging them to arrest Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agents who violate the US and Florida Constitutions, as well as statutes regarding sexual battery as it applies to individual TSA employees during enhanced pat-down procedures. (Wikipedia).
Now, Wyllie is suing to get himself included in the three gubernatorial debates. Clearly, he believes that he should be taken seriously as a candidate.
He may succeed.
In 2006, Max Linn, with an equally improbable campaign, mangaged to sue his way into a debate between Democratic candidate for governor Jim Davis and then Republican candidate Charlie Crist.
Linn did a fine job of disrupting the debate.
Maybe Wyllie should get a shot - it might be fun to watch how Scott and Crist react.
But beyond that, there is no reason to believe Wyllie is serious about becoming governor. It would be an insult to him to pretend that he has the slight chance in hell of winning.
