OH: Tea Party Groups Endorse Libertarian Candidates

A press release from the Libertarian Party of Ohio, sent via email:

The North Central Ohio Tea Party announced yesterday that they are endorsing four Libertarian candidates for their respective offices: Charlie Earl for Secretary of State, Matthew Cantrell for state Treasurer, Jeffrey Blevins for 16th Congressional District, and Robert Brent Vollmer for Court of Appeals, 5th District. These are in addition to the previous Tea Party endorsement of William Yarbrough, who also received an endorsement from Outlook Columbus, as well as the endorsement of Matthew Cantrell for state Treasurer by the Cleveland Plain Dealer and the Lima News, and Charlie Earl for Secretary of State from the Freedom Institute of Erie County, the COAST Candidates PAC, and the Reform Party of Ohio. Ten Libertarian candidates were also endorsed by the Boston Tea Party National Committee.

“There is a mood all over the country of more acceptance of third parties and the Libertarian Party message of smaller government, more fiscal responsibility, and more individual freedom,” stated Kevin Knedler, Chair of the Libertarian Party of Ohio Executive Committee. “We are fighting against two old entrenched political machines, but we represent the future, and these endorsements validate that.”

The Libertarian Party of Ohio is the third largest political party in Ohio, and the only one dedicated to the principles of smaller, limited government, lower taxes, and more personal liberty for the residents of the State of Ohio. The Libertarian Party of Ohio has the same vision as the Libertarian Party, which is “for a world in which all individuals can freely exercise the natural right of sole dominion over their own lives, liberty and property by building a political party that elects Libertarians to public office, and moving public policy in a libertarian direction.” For more information, visit http://www.lpo.org.
