Campaign update from Jeff Daiell, Texas Libertarian seeking nomination for Governor

Email from the campaign. Posted to IPR by Paulie.


* The campaign has a manager, Mike Hope. See www.JeffDaiell.com

for details on this exciting development.
* The campaign named Albert Andis as Strategy Coordinator.
* Stephanie Zachry is the Schedule Keeper.
* Jeff has campaigned in several counties already. www.JeffDaiell.comhas all the facts.
* News coverage has begun! The website has the links.

But more remains to be done. If you can arrange a speaking engagement for me, let us know.

More staff positions need to be filled, and we are looking for County Coordinators and State Senate District Coordinators. If you want to help the LPT achieve four-year ballot status in 2010, so that in 2012 we can focus on a winnable local election, please go to the website and volunteer.

Funding, of course, is always critical in a campaign. There is no limit on how much one may contribute to a campaign for Texas governor, and every dollar you can donate will help my staff and me bring
to voters our message of Liberty, of opportunity — and of hope — across all of Texas. You can donate either online, or by sending your contribution to the postal address below. Anything you do will
be appreciated, and carefully used to advance our Libertarian ideals.

For Texas and Liberty,

Jeff Daiell

    My gosh, this is like Jeff’s 5th run for Governor or something? Enough already. The LPT has like thousands of members. They couldn’t pick someone different to run this time?

  2. Trent Hill

    Friedman is reportedly considering another run, either as an Independent or as a Democrat.

  3. Trent Hill

    Or, and Larry Kilgore is supposedly going to run again. He’s a former CPer, part of the clique that left when Peroutka did.

    You think they have what it takes for statewide ballot access in Texas?

  5. Trent Hill

    Sorry, I meant to include that he’ll run as a Republican. He ran once already, for Senate I think ,and got 17% or so in a two-way primary.

    But I do think the CP will be on in Texas in 2012.

  6. Trent Hill

    I know. They’ve done it once before, and apparently think they can do it this time. I do have some doubts, but they have alot of people in TX after the Ron Paul stuff. Im sure the LPTX has benefited to. Interestings, TXCP meetings have been the largest in the country for quite some time (sometimes pulling 200-300 people)–but they’ve never been able to turn that into significant fundraising or ballot access (except 96,with the help of many buchananites).

    Those are good numbers. Are these state conventions, supper club speakers, or what?

    They have to get names and contact info from as many of those as possible (as in actively ask them one on one, not just leave a sign-up sheet)
    and then followup with contacts asking people to do stuff if they want to really capitalize on that.

    Writing us to let us know what all they are doing probably wouldn’t hurt.

    Kilgore ran in 2006 for governor (GOP Primary), finished second in a four-way race, then ran against Cornyn for Senate last March, garnered 17-18% and Kinky Friedman will be running as a Democrat if he does run again.

    But, this is the coronation of Kay Bailey Hutchison, Texas’ other senator.

    Our nominee for governor won’t be getting the media that say, Barry Cooper will/could get for Texas Attorney General.

  9. Trent Hill

    Joey,

    I think its way to early to say anything like that. Kay Bailey Hutchinson could really screw up, get a tough primary challenger, etc.

    Paulie, thanks for posting this.

    The campaign has already passed many LP campaigns in publicity, activity, fundraising, and staffing, and the election is still over a year and a half away. So I hope everyone will check the web site frequently, volunteer, and contribute.

    Keep sending us updates – contact.ipr@gmail.com is better than my personal email, because it gives the other IPR writers a chance to post it too, which will become a lot more important after I get over being sick and get back to real (as in paying) work.

    This vastly increases your chances of getting covered, although we can’t guarantee we’ll run everything we get.

    It is with a sad heart that Texas Libertarians and all those who love liberty remember Albert Andis. Our thoughts go out to his family and friends.
