We have received news that David F. Nolan, a founder of the Libertarian Party, passed away this weekend. The Libertarian Party was founded in 1971 in Mr. Nolan's living room. He had remained active with the Libertarian Party including currently serving on the Libertarian National Committee and running for U.S. Senator from Arizona in the recent elections. He is survived by his wife Elizabeth. He will be dearly missed by the Libertarian Party and the liberty community. We'll have more information about David Nolan soon.

LP Monday Message: Looking ahead

November 15, 2010

Dear Friend of Liberty,

We are still compiling and analyzing the election results from November 2 so that we can compare them in detail to previous years.

We've received comments from candidates around the U.S. They range from "I won re-election" to "I thought I would win" to "I thought I would do better." One of my favorite responses is "I'm going to run again now that I know what I'm doing." Several states have reported improvement over previous election cycles.

Nebraska after November 2nd

November 2nd came and went with exciting news from all over the country. The electorate rejected overt, big government, nanny-state policies. Nebraska Libertarians are not however, going to hold our breath in the hope that the GOP will magically adhere to minimum government, maximum freedom principles. They certainly didn’t do that under the Bush administration and have shown themselves to be just as susceptible to the “Washington bennies” as their Democratic cronies.

LP Monday Message: Election Results

November 8, 2010

Dear Friend of Liberty,

First of all I want to thank our over 800 candidates again for taking the time to run for office.

Now that we've all had a little time to catch our breaths after election day, we're working to compile and analyze the results of our efforts.

While it looks like our percentages improved a little overall, I can't report that we had any major breakthroughs that we always hope for. The few races we won that we're aware of so far were for small local races, like soil and water district boards.

Preliminary election results

These are preliminary results for Libertarians running for Governor, U.S. Senate, and U.S. House. Vote counts and percentages are not final, but percentages probably will not change much. This list does not include several Libertarians who had to run as write-in candidates (their votes have not been counted yet).

Bob Barr: Express Jet pilot a political hero

2008 Libertarian Party presidential candidate Bob Barr writes in The Atlanta Journal Constitution:

U.S. Senate contests – explaining success

As Wes Benedict pointed out in a recent message, we had two U.S. Senate campaigns this year that were unusually successful, in terms of vote percentages. Rebecca Sink-Burris received 5.3% of the vote in Indiana, while yours truly got 4.7% in Arizona.
