And may I just be the first to say :(…
Yeah, it’s a blow to the LPGA but it looks like he’s still another Ron Paul for the movement. From the Chattanooga
The state’s only Libertarian to be elected to a county leadership post is no longer a Libertarian.
Dade County Commission Chairman/Executive Ben Brandon said he is switching back to the Republican party, the Republican Liberty Caucus, to be exact.
“It’s essentially the Libertarian wing of the Republican Party,” Mr. Brandon said.
Once in office, he said, he found that his party label prevented him from contributing to some policy discussions, especially on the state and federal level.
“This in no way indicates any ill will toward the Libertarian party,” he said. “It’s just an admission that this is a two party system, and if you want to be effective and contribute something you need to be one of those two parties.”
Sad to see for the LP but I imagine Brandon feels that he’ll be able to strike a greater blow for liberty in the GOP.
