Southwest Airlines: Withdraw sponsorship of the Commission on Presidential Debates

The Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD), which is run by the Republican and Democratic parties, has requirements that make it effectively impossible for candidates from other parties to participate in the debates they host, even when those candidates have sufficient ballot access to be able to win the election, as Gary Johnson (L) and Jill Stein (G) do this year. The CPD is unlikely to respond to direct pressure, but may respond to having their sponsorship withdrawn. Southwest Airlines is a sponsor of the CPD this year. Please help us tell Southwest that we want fair debates that present all viable options, not scripted performances presenting only the choices they want us to have.
