Audacious Caucus

The purpose of The Libertarian Party Audacious Caucus is to advocate within the Libertarian Party for a more principled moral stance in opposition to government. We seek to accomplish this by nominating candidates for both internal party positions and public office who have shown a strong commitment to the fundamental core beliefs of the libertarian philosophy. We are also committed to maintaining and increasing the Libertarian Party's involvement in outreach, education and activism, to promote the core beliefs of the libertarian philosophy in our community.
