CRABCAKE: David Lashar…Libertarian Candidate, MD 3rd Congressional District (October, 2018)

This is a Crabcake from The Maryland Crabs! What is a Crabcake? Well, it’s a very short snippet of something you need to know. It might be 5 minutes long..or it might be 20. In any event, enjoy your Maryland Crabcake!

We’re in the homestretch of the Midterm Elections, and David Lashar takes a quick break from campaigning to sit down with Tim and talk about where we are as a country right now and the death of nuanced debate.

David is running as a Libertarian in the 3rd Congressional District of Maryland, the most gerrymandered district in the country. How has the campaign gone this election? What is going to happen to the Democratic and Republican parties after the dust settles? Why can’t third-party candidates attract the attention of national or local media outlets? David and Tim hash that out over the dirty kitchen table.

David Lashar…Candidate for the 3rd Congressional District (E-100)

After ten years of living across the street from each other, it takes a Congressional run to get Tim and David Lashar to finally sit down at the kitchen table and crack open a beer together.

David is running as a Libertarian in the Third Congressional District in the bluest of blue states…but one that elected a wildly-popular Republican governor, so absolutely anything can happen. So, what do Libertarians stand for and why should you vote for one this November? David, a former Republican who got sick of the status quo, breaks it down.
