Dear Friend of Liberty,

I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. Even with the elections recently over, we've had a busy couple of weeks.

Our Libertarian National Committee had a productive meeting in New Orleans on November 20-21. It was a shock to us to learn shortly after the meeting that Libertarian Party co-founder David Nolan had passed away that weekend.

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.
