State of the Race on FaceBook Update #3

Howdy Folks,

This is the third installment of the FaceBook Update series wherein we look at growth rates in FaceBook pages as a possible indicator of success at the polls this fall. Update three will reflect some changes in the process as we ditch our republican and democrat brothers and sisters and only look at the growth of our Libertarian Candidates. The terms will also be broadened to include multiple FaceBook pages in addition to the fan page only filter of the first two installments.
