If you have not heard already, we nominated three great candidates for statewide office at our convention a couple weeks back! Please take a moment and visit our 2014 candidates page to learn more about Chris Holbrook for Governor/Chris Dock for Lt. Governor, Heather Johnson for U.S. Senate, and Keegan Iversen for State Auditor.

'Wonderful' and 'enjoy' aren’t words that often come to mind in the realm of politics. But those who came to hear the candidates, speakers, and new ideas presented at the 2014 LPMN State Convention found that the Libertarian Party of Minnesota is unlike other parties in many ways.
The Libertarian Party of Minnesota showcases a new vitality and expanded appeal to voters during its State Convention.

The question will haunt you throughout the day.
From our several months of collaboration in the lead-up to his announcement, we clearly saw that Christopher would have been a well-spoken gubernatorial candidate to represent the Libertarian Party of Minnesota. Despite his change of heart, we wish Christopher the best.

Unfortunately, it's that time of year when we all have to deal with income taxes. But this year, there's a bright spot. You'll see something you haven't seen before. Due to our newly officially-recognized status, "Libertarian" is now one of the options for the $5 political check-off. It won't affect your payment or refund, so when you file, please keep us in mind!
It was an unprecedented week. For the first time in state party history, the Libertarian Party of Minnesota caucused in every region of the state. The coordinated events were dubbed "Liberty Launch 2014" and the results are showing that liberty has indeed been launched!
