Move over, Terry McAuliffe and Ken Cuccinelli: there’s a third candidate on the ballot in the governor’s race this November.
The Libertarian Party of Virginia announced Thursday that its gubernatorial candidate, Robert Sarvis, obtained the 10,000 signatures of registered Virginia voters needed to earn a spot on November’s ballot.
The Libertarian Party of Northern Virginia (LPNOVA) hosted a candidates’ forum on May 16th. Bruce Majors, whose 2012 run for U.S. House Delegate in Washington, D.C. secured major party status for the D.C. Libertarian Party, attended the event and recorded footage of it. From his video description:
Gubernatorial candidate Robert Sarvis, and state delegate candidates Patrick Hagerty (Loudon County), Laura Delhomme (Arlington), Lindsey Bolton (Crystal City), and Anthony Tellez (Fairfax) answered questions from a room full of local libertarians.
The LP National website, LP.org, currently has a small banner on the front page promoting Lindsey Bolton, Libertarian Party candidate for Virginia House of Delegates from the 48th district:
Recently, Bolton’s Facebook page surpassed 2,000 “likes.” Austin Petersen, former paid employee at LPHQ, current Director of Production at FreedomWorks and a former Associate Producer for Judge Andrew Napolitano’s Fox News show “Freedom Watch”, recently promoted Bolton on his own Facebook page:
Another strong, independent lady of liberty is running for office in Virginia!
