LP Updates!

By way of Michelle MacCutcheon,

During the past month:

– we got our first Libertarian statewide officeholder, who is now running for U.S. Senate

– the New Mexico Libertarian Party was recognized as an official major party

– an ex-Democratic state legislator joined the party to run as a Libertarian for Secretary of State

– the Nevada party is on the cusp of achieving official status by exceeding 1% of all registered voters

– our Libertarian state legislators in New Hampshire introduced a bipartisan marijuana legalization bill, and other bills relating to ballot access

– our Libertarian state senator in Nebraska got her occupational licensing bill through committee with the enthusiastic support of both the ACLU & the state’s biggest conservative think tank

– Libertarians in Oxnard, California successfully gathered enough signatures to recall the mayor and three city council members

– the Libertarian mayor of Calimesa, CA attracted national press attention for the massive savings, and butting heads with the unions, over his fire department reforms

– the Ohio Libertarian Party passed over 81,000 signatures on its party petition, working toward the ~55,000 valid signatures needed, and according to Richard Winger, the most gathered by any third-party in any state since 2008. ( currently at 48K+)

Good job, guys.

– Michelle MacCutcheon
