It really is a shame that Lessig won't make it into the debates (because his ideas are worth a wider audience) but at least he can still release ads like this:

Harvard Law professor and Democratic presidential candidate Lawrence Lessig is up with his first television ad, and in it he slams Marco Rubio’s alliance with major corporations that are backing his candidacy for president.

[...] Though he may not be recognized by the Democratic National Committee to participate in the party’s first presidential debate next week, his financial prowess allowed him to spend $150,000 to air the 15-second ad in Iowa and New Hampshire.

The ad begins with the question, “Who owns Marco Rubio?” before segueing to a picture of the Florida senator adorned with logos of contributors including Wells Fargo, Honeywell, Goldman Sachs, KKR and other financial services companies.
