Libertarian Tim Nelson gets Major Face-time with the Albany Herald

And the beat goes on.

The fine folks over at That's Just Peachy, the best little news aggregator in Georgia , picked up an article by Carlton Fletcher down at the Albany Herald about the Libertarian Party of Georgia's growing strength. Libertarian Tim Nelson, the newly elected Vice Chair for the LP's Southwest chapter was featured in the interview and got extensive quotes about this fall's slate of Statewide candidates as well as Jeff Sexton's intent to run for local office on the Leesburg City council.

Here's a snippet from the article, and the readership can read the whole thing here:

Local Libertarians will be able to add Sexton to that list when he officially qualifies to run for a vacant seat on the Leesburg City Council.
But the governor’s race is the one that party members across the state are keeping their eye on.

“That’s the best thing going for us,” Nelson said. “If Monds can get 20 percent of the vote, our candidates will be allowed to run in the future as members of a recognized political party. Now we have to secure signatures to get on the ballot, and that can be costly and time-consuming.

“I think he has a good chance of doing well, and that would be huge for Georgia. Three candidates gives voters more choice. My hope is that voters will vote for the person with whom they share similar beliefs. I hope they don’t say ‘I agree with so-and-so, but he doesn’t have a chance to win so I’m voting for someone else.’ It’s a way to let the career politicians know you’re not happy with the way things are going.”

Way to carry the ball for Liberty Jeff.
