Libertarian chair invites outraged Trump loyalists to split their tickets

Vote Libertarian down ballot

Libertarian National Committee Chair Nicholas Sarwark issued this statement to Trump loyalists unhappy with the GOP:

“In a recent tweet, Trump spokeswoman Katrina Pierson noted that she was getting a ‘mass volume of texts from people all over the country who will #VoteTrump but [down]ballot not so much.’

“The Libertarian Party would love to remind you, if you are considering this route, that we have nearly 600 down-ballot candidates running nationwide who would love your support.

“Of course, we would love your support for our presidential candidates as well. We encourage you to take a look at the qualifications of Governors Johnson and Weld. But if you are firmly decided on your presidential vote, we understand.  Your down-ballot votes have a home with us that you can feel great about.

“Here’s a handy interactive map so you can check out Libertarians on your ballot:

“The Libertarian Party is the party of principle. We believe in minimum government and maximum freedom. We currently have 146 Libertarians holding elected office nationwide. Help us elect more this November.”
