The NH Liberty Alliance keeps gaining momentum. First we gained friends among a small clutch of liberty-friendly State Reps that were glad to have support. Then we gained respect from mainstream politicians in both parties as our members became more and more prevalent in the State House, and we started altering the course of legislation. Then our members started getting themselves elected to the House of Representatives.
And now, average NH citizens are getting exposed to -- and excited by -- the Liberty Alliance. From community-access TV shows, to radio programs, to newspapers. Here's the latest, a great article in The Hippo, the state-wide free "Entertainment" paper. I've quoted some choice bits from the article below; here's the full version online.
The Concord Monitor is reporting on the upswing of Libertarian candidates in New Hampshire:
For the first time in three election cycles, the New Hampshire Libertarian Party will field a full slate of candidates for the state's top political offices, including governor, senator and both congressional districts.
Why is this happening? The article says:
State Libertarians say they're benefiting from a recent burst of energy from two sources: the Free State Project and Ron Paul's presidential campaign.
