"There are a lot of people in D.C. who are Democrats who probably don't really want to be," says D.C's Libertarian Party congressional candidate Bruce Majors, "but if you don't vote in the primaries then your vote in the election doesn't really count."

Majors surprised many this election by receiving 6% of the vote against longtime congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton, guaranteeing the Libertarian Party major party status in the nation's capital.

Majors sat down with Reason TV's Nick Gillespie to discuss the election, D.C. politics, and why hitting the major party threshold is important for libertarians.

Camera by Meredith Bragg and Josh Swain. Edited by Swain.
