Registered voters, members, donations, and organized county affiliates are all up,” said the LPF Chairman, Char-Lez Braden.
The theme of the convention is #BeThatLibertarian, in memory of 2016 Libertarian Party (LP) Presidential Candidate, Dr. Marc Allan Feldman of Ohio. The expression was derived from his closing remarks during the presidential debate at the 2016 LP National Convention. LPF Convention Committee Chair, Marc Tancer says, “I’ve received so much positive feedback on the theme of the convention. Libertarians love that we are honoring Dr. Feldman. We look forward to celebrating his life, his achievements, and his activism.”
