FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

LIBERTARIAN PARTY OF VIRGINIA CENSURES POTENTIAL CANDIDATE

Richmond, VA, February 28, 2017 – On Friday, February 24, 2017, the State Central Committee of the Libertarian Party of Virginia (LPVA) voted to censure party member Nathan Larson and began proceedings to expel him from the party. The member is attempting to gain ballot access for the 31st District House of Delegates race as an independent candidate.

“Nathan Larson does not have and will never receive the Libertarian Party nomination,” states LPVA Chair, Bo Brown. “He espouses many archaic and dark ideas that fly in the face of libertarian philosophy. The Libertarian Party believes in equal rights for all people. No matter how he attempts to rationalize his opinions, they are far outside the realm of the Libertarian Party Platform. If he persists in his campaign for office, he will find that his ideas and previous writings are considered repugnant to the people of Virginia and rightfully so.”
