- Per a tied and controversial vote of the LPRC board, Ben Leder was determined to have automatically resigned his membership for opening opposing the purpose and goals of the caucus.
- A disputed ruling of the SLEC declared Leder's selection as Desarae Lindsey's replacement as illegitimate, splitting the Henderson County LP. The stated justification was that the bylaws' list of a minimum number of meetings per quarter was also a maximum. This split was ended when both factions held the same county convention.
