Michael Jackson Among Top Ten Independent / Third-party Candidates

Political commentator Trent Hill has released his list of the top ten independent/third-party candidates of 2008.

State Rep. Michael Jackson, who is running as an independent in Louisiana's 6th Congressional District race, comes in at number 5.

Jackson's candidacy is noteworthy because he will probably take enough black votes from the white, Democratic incumbent to swing the election to the Republican nominee.
