C-J coverage of Democratic financial support of Libertarian candidate

Lesley Stedman Weidenbener in the C-J on something I blogged about last night: the Indiana Democratic Party mailing out a flyer to support Libertarian Greg Knott at the expense of Republican Todd Young.

My favorite line and an excellent observation:

Despite the Democrats’ mailer, Young has been conservative enough that Hill has sometimes called his views extreme.

Knott is using this to play the other angle-- that he's (also) the most "progressive" candidate, on issues like the war, lobbying reform, tax reform, corporate welfare and I-69-- and is getting airtime (especially in Bloomington).

It'd be interesting to know the extent to which Hill's strategy works or backfires.
