Richard P. Burke is a well-known figure to those interested in the dispute over the recognized Libertarian Party affiliate in Oregon which is presently The Libertarian Party of Oregon, chaired by Lars Hebdor. As of a few days ago, Mr. Burke, who retains his seat as Secretary of the PAC written about on IPR here earlier today, has publicly given support for the campaign of Republican Donald Trump.
Mr. Burke was contacted for a comment and provided the following (unedited):
This is only for the GOP nomination. I think a Trump nomination would shake more loose and create more openings for the Libertarian ticket nationwide than a Kruse or Kasich nomination would. My arrangement with the Trump campaign is only through the May 17th Oregon primary election. Since 1990 I have never opposed or worked against a Libertarian general election candidate nominated by the Libertrarian Party in accordance with bylaws adopted by its members in convention.
