Democrats and Republicans Pressure Libertarian Candidates to Drop Out of Races

From the Libertarian Party blog:

This is a special message for everyone, but especially for the over 800 Libertarian candidates running throughout America.
Candidates, have you been approached by Republicans or Democrats telling you to drop out of the election?
If any Republican or Democratic candidate (or their campaign staff) asks you to drop out of your race, here's what I recommend:
1. Decide right now you absolutely will not drop out under any circumstances.
2. Send a description of your opponent's request to me at
3. Call and email the local press and tell them what happened, including the fact that you absolutely will not drop out of your race, and shame on the other guy for asking.
I know this has been happening in some areas. I want to take your individual stories and compile them into a nationwide press release on this topic. If the Democrats and Republicans are going to use these sneaky back-room techniques, I want the world to know about it.
