Libertarian Party of Nebraska’s ( very own Michael Knebel has officially filed for State Treasurer. He is running against the current Republican incumbent and a Democrat. Let’s throw our support behind Michael and see some changes start to happen! Michael currently works for TD Ameritrade, so maybe he knows a few things about finance.

Gering Libertarian, Ben Backus, running for Secretary of State!

Co-Chair here at WNLP, Ben Backus has officially filed to run against incumbent Secretary of State John Gale. Ben hope to at least gain 5% of the votes, which are needed for any political party to stay on the ballots – per state laws – which is a must for the Nebraska Libertarian Party to continue moving forward! If he wins, Secretary of State is an office he knows he could best handle.
