Campaign reform, however, was the topic of the day. The main moderator of the debate, Christina Tobin, founded the Free and Equal Elections Foundation, which organized the debate. Free and Equal's goal is to add more candidates to elections and alter America's two-party system.
This topic came through in the last question of the night. The candidates were asked to discuss problems with the election process and some possible solutions. All the candidates agreed that there was a problem getting on the ballot in many states.
Castle, who is on the Constitution Party ticket, said that his main problem was getting on the ballot, noting that a large amount of signatures are usually required. Plus, a good portion of signatures may not be accepted. The candidate said it cost his campaign about $3 per signature, when a six-figure amount of total signatures needed can really add up.
