While the Libertarian Party have not have fielded a large slate of candidates this election cycle, it nonetheless made some significant history.
Three Union County Libertarians have teamed-up to run for three seats on the board of commissioners. The candidate triumvirate of Stephen Burr, Brandon Derr and Tom Hohman filed on the last day.
Two of the three candidates for U.S. Congress, Lon Cecil in CD12 and Thomas Hill in CD 8 filed by petition, rather than paying the $1740 filing fee. Mike Beitler filed for U.S Senate and Tom Rose filed for U.S. House 2 by paying the fee.
And what might be a first, but surely is an interesting development in Libertarian politics, T.J. Rohr filed for District Attorney in district 25, which covers Burke, Caldwell and Catawba counties. Rohr is a two-term Lenoir town council member and has run for NC House before.
