In a recent Quinnipiac University poll, libertarian gubernatorial candidate Adrian Wyllie has 9 percent of the support in the race for Florida governor.

"There's a mantra out there that we're stealing votes from one candidate or another. Democrats say we're stealing votes from Crist, Republicans say we're stealing votes from Scott," Wyllie says. "But my contention is we're not stealing votes from anybody. We're earning votes, and if Republicans and Democrats can't put out candidates that people support, that's not my problem."

He is currently on a month-long tour of more than 30 craft breweries to meet with voters.

"Well I think with Adrian, he gives you a choice," Wyllie campaign volunteer Ron Rollins says. "The other two are pretty much the same. So, if you want a difference, you go with Adrian for smaller government, for one thing, and for empowering the individual [with] more and more rights, I think is what we stand for as libertarians."

Wyllie says he hopes the exposure will gain him enough support to get him into the debates with the republican and democratic nominees. 

The debates begin in October.
