@ LP.org:

LP.org: SCOTUS nominee thinks it’s OK to ‘disappear’ citizens when fighting terrorism

LP.org: Sarwark wins unprecedented 3rd consecutive term as Libertarian national chair

'I believe not in some of your freedoms some of the time, not ingun rights or gay rights; I believe in all of your freedoms, all of the time. That's who I am.' — Nicholas Sarwark, LNC Chair

Nicholas Sarwark won an unprecedented third consecutive term on July 2 as chair of the Libertarian National Committee, in balloting by delegates to the 2018 Libertarian National Convention in New Orleans.

Sarwark ran on his record of presiding over the best presidential vote total in Libertarian Party history in the 2016 election, as well as increasing the party’s campaign and media support staff, made possible by the best fundraising results in a non–presidential election year for the past 14 years.… Read more ...
