Won't voting for a third party candidate just split the vote and elect a Democrat?

Question. Won't voting for a third party candidate just split the vote and elect the worst choice in a three way race?

Answer. Yes, that happens occasionally in elections around the country.

To resolve this issue, the Wyoming Country Party will not run a candidate in a race where the incumbent is judged to be favorable to the principles of the Wyoming Country Party.

The Wyoming Country Party bylaws specify that process of nominating a candidate to be on the ballot in a given race is a two step process. The first step is to decide if of the the incumbent running for re-election has proven to be a supporter of less taxation, less spending and taking back power from the federal government. If the answer is yes, then the Wyoming Country Party will not run a candidate in that race, and will endorse the incumbent if the incumbent agrees that such an endorsement would be beneficial to his campaign.

However, if the incumbent is not deemed to be supportive of Wyoming Country Party principles, then the Wyoming Country Party will nominate a candidate.

The objective of the Wyoming Country Party is to elect citizens to office who will work to shrink government, regardless of what political party those citizens are associated with.
