Party chairman Doug Craig said Libertarians are proud to offer candidate as alternatives to the two party political system in Georgia.
“In spite of restrictive ballot access laws the Libertarian Party continues to offer candidates who want limited government and maximum freedom. Our candidates represent more than a bumper sticker campaign. More and more voters identify themselves as “independent”. It’s a sign voters are losing interest in the two major parties. We want to offer up what we feel are candidates that represent personal freedom and fiscal responsibility”, said Doug Craig
