Libertarian Presidential Hopefuls to “Slash the Pork”
CONTACT: Bill Shotey

DEARBORN. On Sunday, June 11, the three leading contenders for the Libertarian Party nomination for President of the United States will be taking the opportunity to slash the pork — literally.

The Libertarian Party of Michigan is sponsoring a special Pig Roast fund raising event in Southfield to benefit the party’s Campaign Fund.

“Most voters don’t realize that our very existence as a ballot-qualified party depends entirely on how well our ‘top-of-ticket’ candidate does,” observed event hostess and Ballot Access Retention Committee chair, Barb Goushaw. “This year that will, of course, be our presidential candidate. And since we won’t even know who that will be until after the national nominating convention in July, let alone what his or her campaign strategy or funding will be,” she continued, “we are raising our own campaign money right here in Michigan to buy advertising to support our candidate in this ‘ballot-status’ race.”

Harry Browne, the LP’s ’96 nominee for president and the leading contender to be the party’s first ever, second time candidate, has already committed to attend, as have longer shot contenders former New Hampshire state rep, Don Gorman, and Arizona entrepreneur, Barry Hess. Each of the three in turn will take machete in hand and have a whack at the giant, roast pig.

Tickets to Slash the Pork are $40 for the afternoon event and include all food, drink and games, as well as other uniquely Libertarian entertainment.

Complimentary press passes are available with advance request.
