The holidays are upon us. Before you go to your festivities, here’s a quick note on how WakeLP is wrapping up 2019, and moving into the next decade.
Candidates are currently filing to run for office in 2020. It looks like the Libertarian Party of North Carolina will have candidates running for governor and a Wake resident, Shannon Bray, will run for U.S. Senate. Eight Wake Libertarians have already filed to run for the General Assembly and we expect another five or six to have filed by next Wednesday.
There are 11 state House seats and 5 state Senate seats in our county. We’d love to offer voters a Libertarian choice in all of those races. It’s important voters see more than just Democrats and Republicans on their ballot in 2020.
The candidates who’ve filed to date are:
NC Senate 17 – Travis Groo
NC Senate 18 – Jason Loeback
NC House 11 – Adrian Travers
NC House 37 – Liam Leaver
NC House 41 – Guy Meilleur
NC House 49 – Cap Hayes
NC House 38 – Richard Haygood
NC House 35 – Michael Nelson
All but Loebck and Travers ran in 2018.
