Virginia Libertarians are First Non-Major Party in 98 Years to Nominate a Full Slate for U.S. House

The Virginia Libertarian Party has nominated candidates for U.S. House in all eleven districts. Because the party is not qualified, each nominee needs his or her own petition of 1,000 valid signatures to appear on the ballot. The deadline is June 10. If all eleven candidates get on the ballot, this will be the first time any party other than the Democratic and Republican Parties ran a full slate for U.S. House in Virginia since 1916. The Socialist Party had nominees in all Virginia districts that year, and in 1914, and in 1912. See this story. Thanks to Rick Sincere for this news.

    So there may be a few states that will have a full slate of Libertarian candidates. I see states like Montana will have a full slate.
