We still have much work to do, but we thank all of our great candidates who put their time and name on the line to promote liberty in Kentucky! It takes great activists like you to continue to grow the Libertarian movement.
We thank our donors! Despite being called every name under the sun, you enabled us to go farther than we've ever gone before. A total of $4B was spent nationwide on federal elections. We did very well for spending as little as we did.
And of course, we thank our voters and supporters! You are the reason we do this. Without you, there wouldn't be a reason to continue. Thank you!
