Derrick Miller emailed with a really interesting question that’ll probably end up answered subjectively:
I have been wondering for a long time which state LP chapter is the largest and most organized. Not which one has the biggest hotshot candidate du jour, but which one has the most developed and effective organization. Any chance you’d be willing to put that question to your readers?
I’d arguable that it’s Texas, since they had the organizational skills to put so many candidates on the ballot this election. Unfortunately, I don’t think flooding the ballots with paper-candidates recruits Libertarians as well as the “hotshot candidate du jour” method.
Feel free to speculate in the comments.
Update: Paper candidates end up hurting the party, no joke.
