Henderson Libertarians held their first county convention since reorganizing and the event was covered by the local media. “The Libertarian movement is growing everywhere,” said Shelby Mood, candidate for state House District 117.
Mood is facing the usual uphill battle against the establishment parties, lack of name recognition and funding. He plans to meet this challenge by reaching out to groups on both the left and right, emphasizing their common ground with libertarians.
For example, he'll talk to to local tea party groups about Second Amendment rights and taxes, and to liberals and progressives about protecting civil liberties and legalizing marijuana.
