From Iowa Public Radio:


Republican Gov. Kim Reynolds does not face a primary election challenger and there are six Democrats running for their party’s nomination. There is also a primary race for Libertarians this June. The Libertarian Party of Iowa has full political party status for the first time this election cycle. That’s because of a record-breaking showing in Iowa for presidential candidate Gary Johnson in 2016. There are two candidates running for their party’s nomination: Marco Battaglia and Jake Porter. Battaglia has been an active member of the state and national Libertarian Party for five years. He was a nominating delegate to the last national convention, and he’s worked for a number of state and national political campaigns.

Battaglia spoke with IPR’s Clay Masters.

    He touches on mental health issues and policy around the 20 minute mark. Could be an interesting topic for Libertarian candidates to touch on in the future.
