LINCOLN, Neb. — The Libertarian Party’s presidential candidate will be on Nebraska’s November ballot.
Organizers needed about 6,000 signatures from voters and say they gathered nearly 10,000. The Secretary of State’s office confirms the Party is recognized.
The candidate, former Georgia Congressman Bob Barr, left the GOP in 2006 over what he called bloated spending and civil liberties intrusions by the Bush administration.
The Party hasn’t cracked 1 percent of the national popular vote in a presidential race. But it bills itself as the third-largest party and is on the ballot in at least 30 states.
