The state of the Texas libertarian party


Triggerfinger via Comments at Shall Not Be QuestionedIn Texas, the Libertarian party runs candidates for many local races. In their communications, that is one of their major selling points: they are trying to be a real political party working from the ground up as well as running no-hope candidates for big races. The big races are viewed as tools for ballot access (usually, x% of the ballot for president or governor means you don’t have to petition for ballot access).

This doesn’t mean that they can organize their way out of a wet paper bag consistently, but they seem to do a better job of it than most third parties and are consistently on the ballot in 1/3rd to 1/2 of local races.

I can’t speak to other states, though.
