The Life and Liberty Party has nominated its first ever presidential ticket. At its national convention held on June 27, 2020, J.R. Myers and Tiara Lusk were nominated as the Life and Liberty Party Presidential and Vice Presidential nominees, respectively.
J. R. Myers ran for Constitution Party President in 2016, but ultimately fell short to Darrell Castle who received 54% of the vote on the first ballot at the Constitution Party National Convention. However, a Scott Copeland / JR Myers ticket did appear on the ballot for President in Idaho under the Constitution Party name due to Idaho’s disaffiliation from the National Constitution Party. The ticket received 2,356 votes.
Tiara Lusk was one of three candidates seeking the Vice Presidential nomination of the Life and Liberty Party, receiving 71% of the vote on the first ballot. A native of Idaho, Tiara is an executive project management consultant and an Adjunct Business Management Professor for Western Nevada College.
According to co-founder Lori Stacey, the party is anticipating ballot access in 10 states, including California, with several lawsuits ongoing. They are currently seeking presidential electors across the nation. The party will also be a certified write-in for several other states.
The Life and Liberty Party was founded in the spring of 2019 by J.R. Myers and Lori Stacey. You can find more information on their website at www.lifeandlibertyparty.com
