Brian Irving at Liberty Point:
The formula for Libertarian candidate success is rather simple: Show up. Be nice. Win. That will be the message of Libertarian National Committee Chair Nicholas Sarwark in his keynote address to the Libertarian Party of North Carolina State Convention April 11.
Sarwak said that when Libertarians run for office consistently, it shows people who aren’t libertarian that we’re a political party that’s here to stay, and will be here when they need us.
When we do show up, we should be nice. The means focusing on finding areas of agreement with people, rather than trying to win arguments. This builds relationships that will last long after the election.
“If we do these two things, and keep at it, we can win in the short and long term.” he concludes.
Join us April 10-12, 2015 at the Hilton Garden Inn on Miami Blvd (just off I-40), Durham.
IPR missed reposting this before the speech, but will post video if we receive it. For anyone in North Carolina that did not know about the convention and would like to go, you can still catch the tail end of it today. It’s a busy weekend for LNC chair Nick Sarwark, as he will also be on C-SPAN’s Washington Journal from 8:30 AM to 9:15 AM Eastern time today and just put out a new press release about the murder of Walter Scott by South Carolina police and the epidemic of police violence in the US.
