Kevin is the current Chair of the Oklahoma Libertarian Party. Elected first as Vice-Chair in 2019, Kevin has participated in local election campaigns for Libertarian candidates within the state including Chad Williams’s successful run for City Council of the City of Choctaw. Kevin believes the Libertarian Party is at the forefront of the liberty movement and is focused on helping the party become more streamlined and successful in local elections to advance the party’s goals. He has advocated for a larger focus by the party on spreading the word of libertarianism to millennials and the younger generations through a partnership with Young Americans for Liberty and speaking engagements on local campuses.

Kevin is a Lifetime Member of both the OKLP and the Libertarian Party.

2021 Campaign for OKLP Chair

Hobbie announced his campaign for Oklahoma Libertarian Party Chair on February 2nd, 2021. Kevin ran as a Unity Coalition Candidate, who gained support from both the Libertarian Party Mises Caucus and other members of the party. In a very unique election, the outcome of the first vote was a dead tie, 23-23 with one abstention. Hobbie and his opponent, Rex Lawhorn, offered to split the duties and serve as co-chairs. However, the delegates decided to continue voting, and Kevin won the Chairmanship by a single vote in the second round.
