Dear Friend of Liberty,

Ohio primary voters can vote Libertarian for the first time

New York LP chair offers tips on getting press coverage

from New York LP chair Chris Edes:

Get free media time. Get involved in your local Tea Party, then call the media and say you're available for interviews.

Convention Early Bird extension to 4-12: Boortz moved, Munger added

[April 7 update: Boortz will not be speaking at the LP Convention.]


The Convention Committee has extended the Early Bird pricing until April 12. Part of this is due to confusion and mixed messages over which speakers are scheduled for when. Our speaker lineup continues to evolve and is always subject to change. One recent change is that Neal Boortz has been moved from the Sunday evening banquet dinner speaker position. We do expect Mr. Boortz to speak in a different time slot.
