Caucus Cronies Kick Competent Candidate to Curb; Portia Powers Positive Outreach in Selma
By Gold Wedge Group • Issue #2 • View online
There were state conventions held this last weekend around the country for various Libertarian Party affiliates, including North Carolina, Kentucky, Indiana, and Pennsylvania, but the biggest was the Libertarian Party of Pennsylvania‘s state convention in Williamsport.
While it may be a violation of state election law, the Pennsylvania affiliate allows members who do not reside in Pennsylvania to vote on party officers and candidates as long as they have been members of the state party for at least 180 days in advance. Approximately eighty out of state members attended the convention, the vast majority members of the Mises Caucus who vote in lockstep with Micheal Heise.
Joe Solowski has been running as a Libertarian for Pennsylvania Governor for well over a year, raising money and traveling the state, assisting other Libertarian candidates and elected officials, and working with anyone advancing the mission of electing more Libertarians in Pennsylvania. He was the only candidate for Governor announced prior to this last weekend. And when time came to officially nominate a candidate for Governor, Michael Heise stood up to personally nominate a Trump supporter and convicted sex offender to run instead of Joe Soloski.
When Heise’s preferred candidate was found to be ineligible for the nomination by virtue of having just moved from New Jersey a couple years prior, Heise instructed his minions to vote None of the Above for Governor, rather than allow Joe Soloski to continue his campaign as a Libertarian.
The Mises Caucus members in attendance followed those orders and as a result, the Libertarian Party of Pennsylvania will not have a gubernatorial candidate on the ballot in 2022.

The Libertarian Policy Institute organized a targeted candidate recruitment drive in Arkansas, spearheaded by Governor candidate Ricky Harrington and former Libertarian Party executive director, Wes Benedict. At the end of the filing period, a total of 56 Libertarian candidates filed with the Arkansas Secretary of State, more than four times the previous record of 12 candidates in 2018.
