Libertarian Policy Institute Plans to Fill Iowa State House Seats
DES MOINES, IA, August 1, 2022 – The Libertarian Policy Institute, a leading public policy group focused on candidate recruitment and advocating for libertarian principles and ideas, announces today that they will be launching a targeted campaign to run up to 100 candidates for the 2022 Iowa legislative seats.
In 2019, the state legislature moved up the filing deadline for Libertarians, Independents, and other third-party candidates. This year, a judge struck down the legislative action as unconstitutional after a lawsuit was filed by the Libertarian Party of Iowa and co-plaintiff, former Libertarian candidate for governor Jake Porter.
“There are currently 51 unchallenged seats in the Iowa State House races,” said Jocelyn Jeffries Fry, LPI’s Iowa recruitment coordinator. “When Libertarians run for office, they give voters someone to vote for who shares their values. Our candidates embody our state motto: ‘Our liberties we prize and our rights we will maintain.’”
