The Register Has to Account For Inviting Keyes

Because I’m watching CNN, and not enjoying it, I’m not watching Fox, and Mary Katherine Ham tells me Fox news is saying Keyes didn’t meet the criteria to be included. Booo, Register.
I was wondering about that, since I thought one of the requirements was paid campaign staff in Iowa. Keyes has paid campaign staff in Iowa? Paid with what, the change behind the couch cushions?
Switching over, Luntz tells us, “The most common response I got on Keyes was, ‘what’s he doing there?’”
