“Wes Benedict, [Executive Director] of the national Libertarian Party, is reminding the politically minded that they can still declare their intent to run for office in 35 states. Filing deadlines for the formal paperwork have not passed in scores of states, ranging from Alabama to Wyoming. ‘It’s not too late to run for office as a Libertarian,’ Mr. Benedict advises.
The New Orleans, Louisiana LP chapter was featured in an article on April 19 in the Mid-City Messenger, an online New Orleans newspaper.
"The New Orleans chapter of the Libertarian party applauded the recent forward movement of two bills in the state Senate that would legalize the sale of raw milk from farmers and expand access to medical marijuana in Louisiana, all while continuing to prepare for their party’s national convention next month.
The Libertarian Party is America's third largest political party, founded in 1971. Our vision is for a world in which all individuals can freely exercise the natural right of sole dominion over their own lives, liberty and property by building a political party that elects Libertarians to public office, and moving public policy in a libertarian direction.
