Nall May Run as Libertarian Candidate for Governor

Birmingham - Excitement ran high at the monthly meeting of the Executive Committee of the Libertarian Party of Alabama (LPA). Several years ago, such a meeting would have consisted of a handful of people sitting around a room criticizing the government. In contrast, the meeting held yesterday was abuzz with excitement about present and upcoming legislative agenda, various grassroots and lobbying organizations and activities, changes in district leadership, successful campus organizations, and lobbying from some parties to gain support of various political agenda.

The most significant activity of the day involved discussion and one resolution pertaining to the support of Loretta Nall as a 2006 gubernatorial candidate of the LPA. Nall recently stated her intent to run for Governor on the Libertarian ticket in an article in the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

Discussion was held as to what sort of campaign Nall would run. A picture clearly emerged of an insurgency-style grassroots campaign. Nall stated that “it would certainly be the most exciting campaign in Alabama politics since the days of George Wallace.” Nall is noted for her unique style, which one recent newspaper report described as caffeinated. Nall’s shock approach to politics and gonzo journalistic style will likely make her the most colorful candidate in years from a party and state known for such campaigns. Nall was especially enthusiastic about the opportunity to run against possible GOP candidate Roy Moore.
