JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Campaign signs in support of presidential candidates Sen. John McCain and Sen. Barack Obama decorate lawns across the country, but a man who said he doesn’t support either candidate has created quite a stir with a sign of his own.

“They Both Suck ‘08" reads the sign in Timothy Connors’ front yard.

Connors, who lives in San Marco, told Channel 4 he supports politics but said he doesn’t support either of the frontrunners in this year’s election.

“I get a lot of response — notes on the door or people honk if I’m outside or what not,” Connor said.

He said he made the sign because he has an interest in politics. He said he just doesn’t have an interest in this year’s candidates.

“I feel a lot of people get caught up in the lesser of two evils. I think it would waste a vote if I don’t 100 percent support a candidate,” said Connor.

Connor said he isn’t going to support either candidate. Instead, he said if he can’t cast a ballot for who he wants, he’ll wait until 2012 and not vote in this election.

“My theory is if I can’t vote for who I want, it really doesn’t count,” Connor said.

He said the person he would like to see on the ballot is Ron Paul.
