Macia For Congress (NH CD-2) - Macia likes chances of beating cancer better than being invited to debate

Oct 24, 2012 - Canterbury, NH: Hardy Macia, Libertarian candidate for Congressional District 2, released an ad about his exclusion from the upcoming Granite State Debates that claiming his chances are better to beat his cancer than to the upcoming debates.

The sound on the ad is a little soft because Macia said he didn't want to bother the other patients with numerous loud retakes.

Transcript of ad:
