Dear Friend of Liberty,

January 4, 2010 was the deadline to file for office for the November 2010 elections in Texas. An impressive 193 Libertarians filed. I think several others had hoped to file, but they missed the deadline. Texas has the earliest filing deadline for the November 2, 2010 elections.

It’s not too early to put the 2010 National Libertarian Party Convention on your calendar. The 2010 convention will be held Memorial Day weekend from Thursday, May 27 through Monday, May 31 in St. Louis, Missouri. The Libertarian Party has intentionally scheduled many of the recent conventions on holiday weekends because convention hotels have offered lower rates on those weekends.

Libertarian Party wants open health care negotiations

WASHINGTON - The Libertarian Party (LP) calls on President Obama to not break yet another campaign promise by directing Congress to have an open, televised format for all future negotiations on the health care overhaul bills under consideration in Congress.

In 2008, then-Senator Obama promised at least eight times on the campaign trail to have open, transparent negotiations regarding a health care overhaul bill. That promise has been broken. Most substantive negotiations have occurred behind closed doors, not "on C-SPAN" as the President repeatedly promised.

There are three statewide offices for which no Democrat filed, meaning that the race will probably be between a Libertarian and Republican. Libertarians filed for those office as follows:
