Last week at a League of Women’s Voters forum independent candidate Brad Eickholt called on John Foust to withdraw from the race and endorse him,
“But today I have a solution to solve that problem. Today, I’m asking John Foust to withdraw from this race and give us his endorsement,” Eickholt said…..
“I am asking because I believe that even he believes in our message,” he said. “I am asking because I think he has the vision and the foresight to understand that there’s an independent movement moving in this nation and by this act he can nurture this spark into a full blown ranging fire”. (sic)
Libertarian candidate William Redpath did not join Eickholt in asking Foust to withdraw,
“A wise man told me it’s foolish to ask a person to do something they’re not willing to do themselves,” Redpath said.
Surprisingly John Foust did not ignore Mr. Eickholt request to withdraw but responded with this,
“I am not going to withdraw, but I do recognize and appreciate the candidates in this race. I’m glad we have as many candidates as we do.”
