Sarwark is Optimistic About Future of the Party
by Elias J. Atienza
Nicholas Sarwark is the Libertarian Party chairman and was interviewed by The Libertarian Republic on issues ranging from the goal of reaching five percent, to the Libertarian Party breaking half a million registered voters, to being blamed for Donald Trump winning, along with Gary Johnson and Bill Weld‘s future in the party.
Sarwark notes that though the Libertarian Party did not break five percent, it still got their largest vote total in history, along with historic showings in other elections, such as Texas, where Mark Miller, Texas Railroad Commissioner candidate, got five percent and retained the Libertarian Party’s ballot access. Thanks to the 2016 elections, the Libertarian Party will have ballot access in somewhere between 37 and 39 states and Washington D.C. when it comes to the next election season.
In addition, Sarwark slammed Trump for picking people such as Senator Jeff Sessions and Representative Mike Pompeo for Cabinet positions, and hit him on his promise to “Drain the Swamp.”
Sarwark also spoke about the possibility of him running in 2020 as a LP presidential candidate, which he said he would come to a decision at that time, but that his main focus was the 2018 midterm elections.
