Libertarian party releases Arkansas candidate list

Libertarian party releases Arkansas candidate list

From the Arkansas Libertarian Party:

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- On Saturday, the Libertarian Party of Arkansas (LPAR) nominated candidates for the 2012 election during their state convention.  The LPAR nominated candidates to run in all four Congressional districts as well as candidates in several state-wide and local races.

This is the first time in history that the LPAR has met the ballot access requirements to run candidates for any office other than President. The LPAR was certified as a new political party by the Secretary of State in 2011 after submitting more than 16,000 signatures of registered voters. In Arkansas, new political parties choose their candidates at a nominating convention rather than in a primary.

“We are thrilled that every Arkansan will have at least two Libertarians on their ballot this year,” said Chairman Rodger Paxton of Marion.
