Libertarian National Committee Executive Director Wes Benedict wrote and open letter address to “Dear Friend of Liberty.” The letter started with Benedict asking for people to, “run for office”.
Benedict said he is getting many e-mails asking how to run for office. So, he’s sending an open letter explaining how to run. Simply Benedict is asking people to head to this website, http://www.lp.org/run-for-office , contact the state party, and then file with the state.
Benedict say in the letter, “If there's a race you can win, run for that office.”
Here is Benedict’s general plan. He is asking for people to run for office in small jurisdictions, “where it takes less than 1,000 votes to win”. He continues to say if people live in major cities where there are not very many small vote races he is encouraging people to run for Congress.
The Congressional races can generate publicity for the Libertarian Party. He also ads, “(a Congressional run puts candidates) in place in case a major backlash erupts against the Republicans and Democrats.”
