Libertarian Booster PAC, which helped only Texas candidates in 2012, is considering an expansion to other states. We're researching election opportunities and legal issues.
One state we're examining is Virginia, which has elections for governor and also the House of Delegates (that's one house of the state legislature) in November 2013.
We'd love to see nine candidates for House of Delegates, and a candidate for governor. Candidates for House of Delegates require 125 petition signatures, and it's 10,000 signatures for governor.
We don't have firm plans, but below is a possible scenario:
For Libertarian Party candidates for the House of Delegates, our PAC would consider paying 100% of the petition drive costs. Our PAC would also make campaign websites and provide a limited number of free campaign materials such as yard signs, bumper stickers, and business cards.
For governor, our PAC would consider contributing around $10,000 to the petition drive.
We prefer to operate in areas where our help is wanted. We understand that the Libertarian Party leadership and other volunteers in some areas may prefer not to have our PAC's assistance.
For more about what Libertarian Booster PAC has done, see our 2012 report.
Please contact me and let me know if you will consider running for office in Virginia in 2013. I can imagine getting started with petitioning as soon as we identify the first five candidates.
President, Libertarian Booster PAC
