LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - The Arkansas Libertarian Party held its convention this weekend. On Saturday, members decided on their nominees for various political positions.
"It's only the second time we've been able to nominate candidates in the name of Libertarian Party," said Frank Gilbert, who won the party's nomination for gubernatorial candidate.
The long-time third-party group is relatively young in Arkansas. They've doubled their party numbers here in the state in just two years.
"We've been called kooks by many people and marginalized, but in reality, I view us as visionaries," said Geoffrey Neale, Chair of the Libertarian National Committee. "If you are Republican and Democrat, you can play in the game but if you're not, tough."
They call themselves the party of choice.
"I care about people; I care about rights for all," said party member Libby Madar.
