Byron York reports on Alan Keyes’s mysterious campaign and an even more mysterious encounter with the candidate himself.
In the Des Moines Register‘s extremely limited defense, the paper had at least some reason to assume that the 2 percent Keyes polled in October might be valid even though he apparently didn’t register in the last poll. Keyes drew 7 percent in Iowa in 1996, more than enough to affect the outcome, and was the third-place finisher with 14 percent in 2000. He won delegates both times.
Somehow, I’m guessing this year will be different.
