In my state, the taxpayer's party is called the American heritage party. In Washington, there is one super safe democratic house seat, and two pretty safe republican seats, and the rest are really easily influenced by the whims of swing voters. This year it's cool because the Heritage party is running candidates who seem to be having a fair amount of support, and it's pretty clear that the republicans are going to lose. And progressives could never get it together to do the same maneuver, so we will have more democrats! :)
