“These wins represent a great victory for the Libertarian Party of Michigan,” said state campaign chairman, James Hudler. “Unlike Ross Perot’s one-man-show, our party is a real political movement serving its constituency at the grass roots. We look forward to more Libertarian victories at the local level in future elections.”
