Mark Hinkle, national chairman of the Libertarian Party, is a candidate in a special election to fill a vacancy in the California State Senate. The election was yesterday, and the San Jose Mercury News reports:
Runoff appears likely in 15th District Senate race
The race for the seat of former Sen. Abel Maldonado appears headed to an August runoff, prolonging what has been a costly and often fierce battle between Republican Sam Blakeslee and Democrat John Laird.

Libertarians note anniversary of bad Kelo decision
WASHINGTON - Tomorrow, June 23, marks the fifth anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court's Kelo v. New London decision. Today the Libertarian Party published the following open letter:
We, the state chairs of the Libertarian Party, and members of the Libertarian National Committee (LNC), wish to call attention to the fifth anniversary of the wrongful Kelo v. New London decision by the U.S. Supreme Court.

Before getting to more serious issues, I'm asking you to take another quick poll on slogans. We picked the top two from our primary poll, and added a new third choice. (Two choices on the ballot just aren't enough!)
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.
