Libertarians Endorse Christina Tobin For Secretary of State

Yesterday the Libertarian Party of California Executive Committee endorsed Christina Tobin in her 2010 race for California Secretary of State. Tobin is the founder of Free And Equal, an "all-partisan" 501(c)4 advocacy group dedicated to election reform and improving ballot access laws across the United States. While Tobin managed ballot-access efforts for Ralph Nader in his 2008 presidential campaign, Free and Equal helped organize the vice-presidential debate featuring Libertarian Wayne Root, the Constitution Party's Darrell Castle, and Nader's running mate Matt Gonzalez.

Tobin began working on ballot access during the 1998 campaign of her father Jim Tobin, who ran as a Libertarian for governor of Illinois.  Ms. Tobin recently moved to California.  The board of Free And Equal includes Libertarian Party Vice Chair Michael Jingozian and ballot-access expert Richard Winger of San Francisco.  Here is video of an August interview with Tobin about ballot access:
