NC Libertarian candidates unveil "Liberty Agenda"

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Libertarian candidates for the North Carolina Legislature said they would attempt to end forced annexations and eminent domain if they are elected in November.

The 13 House and Senate candidates also said Monday their "Liberty Agenda" would back public school choice, cut off corporate subsidies and make it easier for third parties to get on the ballot.

The Libertarian Party of North Carolina sued over a law that requires groups to collect tens of thousands of signatures to remain an official political party in the state. A trial court judge upheld the requirement, but the lawsuit is now on appeal.

The candidates say the agenda supports the views of Libertarian gubernatorial hopeful Mike Munger.
