Criteria included the candidates positions on issues of interest to the GLBT community, such as same-sex marriage and the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy, and their willingness to discuss these issues in their campaign.
The five candidates endorsed, all Libertarian Party members, are:
- Philip Berg - US Congress, California District 8
- Bruce Guthrie - US Senate, Washington
- Mike Nelson - US Congress, Texas District 5
- David Schlosser - US Congress, Arizona District 1
- Starchild - Board of Supervisors, San Francisco, CA
We regret that due to a very aggressive timeline for nominations some deserving candidates were not able to be considered.
