Sean Haugh joined Senator Kay Hagan and Speaker Thom Tillis on stage for the final debate hosted by the League of Women Voters and WECT-TV. He provided a fresh perspective, stayed focused on the issues and refrained from the mudslinging that is all too common in American politics.
Sean proved to the political class that the Democrats and Republicans are more similar than different. While both Hagan and Tillis were willing to commit us to 30 more years of war and uncertainty in the Middle East, Haugh spoke firmly for military restraint. He also spoke about the need to end corruption in DC by ending favors for dark money and corporate interests.

And see what the media is saying about his performance below.
On the News and Observer, David McLennan, political science professor at Meredith College, says "Voters who watched the debate were fortunate that Libertarian Sean Haugh was included because he broke up the relentless attack lines."
Also from the same N&O article, Aaron Kall, director of debate at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Mich., says "Libertarian Sean Haugh probably came across best in tonight’s debate because he escaped the crossfire of the two major candidates. Thom Tillis made a major error in his concluding remarks by accusing Sen. Hagan of being part of the Republican establishment. Sean Haugh displayed catlike reflexes that matched his cat-covered tie to point out he is similarly confused by the policy differences between the Republican and Democratic parties."
Sean Haugh told The Daily Signal, "I have principles, and when you have principles it makes things that much easier. As Mark Twain said, ‘If you always tell the truth, you never have to remember a darn thing.’"
