After struggling to gain a foothold, Nevada’s Libertarians now face a leadership void

Nevada’s hardscrabble, pioneer spirit supposedly emboldens Nevadans to embrace libertarian values.

But you could fit every member of the official Libertarian Party of Nevada into a classroom.

For a minor political party that hosted about 50 members at its annual state convention in Las Vegas this weekend, there’s plenty of room for growth.

The party’s live-and-let-live philosophy has gained traction within factions of the Republican Party of late, but the actual Libertarian Party has struggled in Nevada.

Last year, no Libertarian candidate got more than 4 percent of the vote. The Independent American Party, the other minor party that ran candidates in Nevada last year, had more candidates and won more votes.
