We lost. Badly.
We had more in our sights than just winning an election: electoral votes, debate participation, public funding. We missed every. single. target.
I am still trying to process just how all of the momentum that we had coming into this campaign was squandered, but I would rather not focus on that. There was a lot to be learned – about campaigning, candidates, the electorate – and the Libertarian party needs to move forward. Here in Montana, there are a few things we need to look at closely to make any kind of impact in future elections.
