98: Election 2020- How Libertarians Can "Win"
It's hard to imagine, but we're just 10 months or so away from the 2020 election. Wild, isn't it? With the Democratic Debates seemingly taking the national conversation towards the brink of outright socialism, and Trump deciding whether or not to start World War III (I'm kidding of course... right?), it seems that most Americans are searching for a candidate that they can support that, well, isn't as crazy as everyone else.
It's why candidates like Mike Bloomberg have essentially decided to spend a substantial fortune on trying to win the presidency, and why the Libertarian Party has an absolutely epic opportunity to win over some hearts and minds by being the adult in the room.
But the real question for the Libertarian Party is, well, will the be the adults in the room?
That's why I'm joined today by Elaine Joan, who is an independent campaign consultant and widely known political commentator, "Libertarian Redhead", who helps me break down some of the problems in Libertarian candidacies past, how Libertarian campaigns can catch on in the future, and which candidates seeking the Libertarian Party nomination can lead the LP to the most success in 2020
If you're considering running for elected office as a Libertarian, then please consider this as a complimentary consulting session between two seasoned political veterans (tips are appreciated in the form of shares, reviews, and Patreon support).
