Ohio Libertarians get coverage by fielding candidates
Posted on Feb 22, 2010
On February 20, the Columbus Dispatch wrote an article about the efforts of the Ohio Libertarian Party:
The party that advocates the small -- small taxes, small government, small infringements on personal freedom -- is trying to grow up and play with the big boys.
Seemingly better organized, and riding a wave of anti-government sentiment fueled by a poor economy, rising deficits and a national Tea Party movement, Libertarians want to harness the public's dissatisfaction with the two major parties to become a true force in Ohio politics.
Libertarians are running in every nonjudicial statewide race and have filed in a number of congressional and state legislative races where, even if their chances of victory are remote, some think they could play a role in close outcomes that could help determine which party controls both Congress and the Ohio House.
