I don't know -- all the more reason to support him.  I suppose there is
a fine line between interfering in the Indiana LP's nominations process,
and wanting to help underwrite the pro-Approval Voting message.  Perhaps
we can ask his campaign how much, if any, support would be appropriate
before the April convention.

At any rate, I can't see piling all my support on a single candidate,
especially when I'm not trying to gain influence (it would be hard to
ask Hagar to be more pro-AV).  I don't know of any other pro-AV
candidates at the moment, but if there turned out to be several, I would
probably increase my total to accomodate them.
