Missouri Libertarian has strong showing in special election

Libertarian Patty Tweedle received 22% of the vote in yesterday's special election for Missouri State Representative (District 62). Tweedle's only opponent was a Republican.

Ballot Access News editor Richard Winger points out that Tweedle had almost as much support as the 2008 Democratic Party candidate for that office. In 2008, the Democrat received 27% of the vote.

January 18, 2010

Dear Friend of Liberty,

While Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. never held political office, his impact on American politics and public policy was huge.

Dr. King knowingly risked his life working for freedom and equality during dangerous times for blacks in America. He advocated using non-violent means, such as civil disobedience, to achieve change, and he was awarded a Nobel Peace Prize. Shortly before his assassination, he was an outspoken critic of the Vietnam War.
