Colorado Recall Election Update: Libertarians Strike Back

by Ross Kaminsky, The American Spectator  |  published on August 15, 2013

The Libertarian Party of Colorado sued the State of Colorado to get more time to petition candidates on to the ballots to replace two state senators who are facing recall elections.

It seemed to me that the Libertarians were likely to win because their argument was based squarely on the state constitution, even though a victory by them would through some chaos into the election, particularly by making it impossible to conduct a proper mail-in ballot election. Indeed, news reports say that despite the recent passage of a law that requires all major Colorado elections to be by mail, this election will not be.

Yesterday, the judge in the case ruled for the Libertarians, meaning they will have until late August to try to submit enough valid signatures to have their candidates’ names appear on the ballot.
I am a strong supporter of the Libertarian Party, have been registered Libertarian in the past, and have probably voted for more Libertarians than Republicans over the past two decades.
