The Libertarian Party of Arkansas held its nominating convention recently and came up with a slate of 33 candidates for state and local political office.

The top race is that for governor. If the party gets 3 percent of the vote in the race, it automatically qualifies for a place on the ballot as a political party along with the Republican Party and Democratic Party. Otherwise, it must gather petition signatures.

Here's the Libertarian slate, some familiar from past elections:

Governor- Mark West
Lt. Governor- Frank Gilbert
Secretary of State- Christopher Olson
Attorney General- Kerry Hicks
Auditor of State- David Dinwiddie
