>>A resounding NO.  Section 312(a)(7) of the Communications Act provides that refusal to sell "reasonable" amounts of time to candidates for public office puts a licensee's license in jeopardy.  Further, as you stated, selling time to one candidate kicks in the "equal opportunity" rule, meaning that you have to then make time available for all other candidates for the same office.<<

My bad, my bad.  The above is missing one fairly critical word:  Section 312(a)(7) refers to candidates for FEDERAL public office.
