Libertarian Victory Fund
- Libertarian PAC Supports Local Campaigns
NORTH LAS VEGAS, NV -- Local Libertarian campaigns across the country
now have a new resource for training and support, and it's called the
Libertarian Victory Fund (LVF).
Founded in February of this year, the LVF was designed to target,
train, and support quality Libertarian candidates running in
potentially winnable races. In just three short months, the new PAC
is already up and running, and making a real difference in
Libertarian campaigns from coast to coast.
"We are very impressed with the support we have received from
Libertarians across the country," said Executive Director Chris
Azzaro. "We've been able to immediately begin training and supporting
The LVF, based in Nevada, is set up as a 527 nonprofit political
organization, and is backed by a star-studded board of advisors
consisting of 12 elected Libertarians.
One of the main priorities of the LVF is to identify quality local
campaigns and provide targeted support to boost them to victory. This
is done through direct contributions, and independent expenditures on
behalf of the campaigns.
Several campaigns have already received support, and so far the
results have been very good. The LVF scored its first targeted
victory on May 1st when David Atkinson won reelection to the Board of
Selectmen in Provincetown, MA.
"The Atkinson race was a great way to get things started," said
Azzaro. "And we're very optimistic about our next two races, as well."
LVF only supports campaigns that can demonstrate in advance that they
have a legitimate shot at winning, based on objective criteria.
"Most contributors don't have the time or resources to evaluate these
campaigns to see which ones are the most worthy of support, so we do
all the work for them"
"Just think of us as Libertarian Investment Advisors," added Azzaro.
The LVF also provides professional training services, and has already
sent four LP candidates and campaign managers to a week-long school
in Virginia. A 15 page campaign training manual is also being offered
free-of-charge, and over 100 copies of the publication have been
distributed to Libertarians throughout the country.
"We need to run high-quality, professional campaigns -- that's what
it takes to win, and that's why these training programs are so
The LVF publishes a free online newsletter entitled "Libertarian
Victory News" which offers coverage of competitive local races,
reports on the accomplishments of elected Libertarians, and tips on
running effective campaigns.
