    I notice from the comments people are wanting to be able to find out more about the candidates, but many do not have websites, Facebook or Twitter pages. Candidates Social Media is FREE. There is no reason why you wouldn’t utilize this powerful resource. We have people that can help you set it up. My concern is we don’t have as many candidates as we should have. This NOTA thing I would guess is part of the reason? Yeah, I know I don’t have anyplace to say anything since I didn’t attend the convention and I am not even a dues paying member, and I will agree I probably don’t deserve to comment on that but I am commenting anyway. We should have a candidate in every race. The people of Texas deserve a third choice or even a choice in some races. Am I wrong? Congratulations to the Candidates we do have and I support each one of you! Be sure to sign up at Ballotpedia and answer all the survey’s that various groups send out to candidates.

    Now that the Dems have chosen a “non-winnable candidate”, our Mark Tippetts can go head-to-head with Gov Abbott. Valdez losing is a no-brainer … Tippetts actually as a good chance of getting a sizable vote! We must “talk it up” … locally in newspapers and state-wide. INSIST that they pay attention to the Libertarian candidates.

    What? No candidates for mayor races?
  • Rick Jamail Perkins
    commented 2018-03-16 09:03:24 -0500
    Straight ticket voting is finally not an automatic option when you vote in Texas, so hopefully the Best Candidate can win, rather than one tied to a specific party without a brain! Also, we need more women running as candidates! Come on ladies, recruit your female friends and get them interested in the LP! Attend the meetings and run for office!

    A lot of these people don’t have websites or social media. I’ve heard non-libertarians are trying to run as libertarians. I’d like to know who they are and what they stand for before I vote.

    We need a State Representative for District 55, which is Bell County.

    Wish all the Libertarian candidates the best in 2018. Some day, the majority of voters are going to get sick of the two party system and realize both parties are killing our Country, and could care less about the citizens.
