Criteria to be included on this page:

1) You must be a libertarian in a non-partisan race, running for Libertarian nomination to be in a race, or running on the Libertarian ticket for a political race, or running some sort of independent or fusion-style ticket with significant libertarian support. The race must be for public (as opposed to party) office.
2) You must have a campaign website.
3) You might not get placed on this list (or henceforth removed) at the subjective whim of the LFS editorial staff — especially if your campaign is really out in lala-land.

If you feel you meet these requirements, please e-mail [email protected] with your campaign particulars. Also, please inform me of any updates or corrections which need to be made. Thanks.

  1. You’re missing Judy Baker (www.judybaker.us), the LPTX Lieutenant Governor candidate, as well as Rose Mercer (www.voteforrose.com), that I can think of while avoiding Faulkner.

  2. Richard — by political race, I mean in contrast to the race for LP office. A couple of people wanted to place their race for LP officers on the list.

  3. Please email me and tell me how to register for this site, or retrieve my password. On March 20 I registered with LPA, but the user name and password emailed to me won’t work here, either to log in, or retrieve my password.

  4. Rock Howard, Texas State Senate, District 14, Austin, TX.
    Preliminary website up at rockhoward.org for Nov. election.

    Two-way race against a Democratic former Austin mayor who peeved many progressives with his overspending, sellouts and bad governing habits. (See stopkirk.com for details.)

    Max Nofziger, a well known progressive and former Austin city councilman is my campaign strategist. Art DiBianca is head researcher. Currently seeking seed money and vounteers in preparation for an active campaign.

  5. budraymond.com

    Bud Raymond, California State Senate, District 26.

    Well, he’s running in LA-LA Land, if you mean Los Angeles, but his campaign has its feet on the ground.

  6. Active candidate for US Congress, TX 21. I’ve been on the campaign trail since January and have already met my Democratic challenger John Courage (the second-best candidate in the race, by the weay) in a candidate forum. We face the Republican incumbent Lamar Smith, a close associate of former Congressman Tom DeLay.

    Yes, my website’s broken. But my campaign is going full speed.

  7. This is great, but what about a list of Libertarians running for winnable offices? Vanity campaigns have their place, but how many people on this list actually have a shot of getting above 10% of the vote? We should also support Libertarians who are running for local races and fighting the long-term battle for the White House.

  8. I’ve decided not to seek public office this year, so please remove me from this list. Instead I’ll be running for Vice-Chair of the national LP.

    You have a few PA candidates wrong. Mark Rauterkus decided to run as an Independent (not a Libertarian) for state senate. He was never our U.S. Senate candidate. Tom Martin is running for U.S. Senate.


    Hopefully we’ll recruit a lot more candidates before the petition deadline in August.

  9. Joseph A. Nagy Jr,

    “Of course no one in TN is running. Not surprised.”

    Joe Dumas is running for Hamilton County Commissioner. http://www.joedumas.com Based on what I’ve learned of his past races I’d say this is one race for LPer’s to consider helping.

  10. Thanks for the nice plug, John. I appreciate the favorable mention. Thanks also for correcting the record with regard to Tennessee candidates.

    The LPTN actually endorsed three candidates at the Tennessee state convention this weekend. I believe all three are running for county commission seats: yours truly in Hamilton County, Dan Burgner in Greene County, and Heather Scott (for RE-election!) in Wilson County.

    We did not nominate anyone for federal or state offices. Instead, the LPTN is focusing on WINNABLE local races this year. IMHO that is a much more productive strategy given our resources and campaign experience.

    I do have a candidate web site at http://www.JoeDumas.com … at this time, I am not aware of web sites for Dan or Heather.

    And, yes, any and all assistance, in whatever form, would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Joe

  11. Hi,

    I’m Mark Rauterkus, of Pittsburgh, PA, USA.

    I’m running for PA Senate, not US Senate.

    And, for the record, I’m the vice-chair of the Allegheny County Libertarian Party — and I’ve run for office twice before as a Libertarian, but on November 7, 2006, I’ll show up on the ballot as an Independent.

    Thanks for all the work you’re doing.

    More at http://Platform.For-Pgh.org/ and feel free to post pointers to any and all of these folks.
