Press Release submitted to IPR:
My name is Kerry Douglas McKennon. I wish to express my intent to become the Libertarian Party nominee for Vice President of the United States.
I have been active in the Libertarian Party for a number of years, currently serving as the Hale County Chair, a senate district representative of the Libertarian Party of Texas Executive Committee, the Platform Committee Chair for Texas, and the National Secretary for Outright Libertarians. I chose to independently seek the nomination for Vice President to give our voters a choice instead of just accepting the pick of our Presidential nominee. While we can assume that great care went into their decision, ultimately it is left to the Libertarian Party to select the candidates who will represent them nationally.
I believe I bring a great compliment to a Libertarian Party ticket. My devoted work to the cause of liberty in Texas, in the various roles I have served, are testament to my belief in the mission of the Libertarian Party.
As a member of the LGBTQ community, I also offer insight to the struggle to uphold civil liberties. It wasn’t until recently, my husband and I could even have our marriage recognized by the majority of the states.
As you have stood by us in our struggle, I will stand by you in defense of individual liberty. I humbly ask for your consideration.
Individual Liberty for All,
