Madsen made the announcement at a press conference Monday in Salt Lake City. He said, “Today I announce that I am joining the Libertarian party and will support the Libertarian presidential ticket of Governor’s Gary Johnson and Bill Weld.

“Both parties use the government to pick winners and losers, in business, in healthcare, in the environment, in education, in every aspect of life. Both parties expand existing programs, create new programs and expand programs set to sunset even if the purpose is no longer needed. Differences among us are accentuated, and our core rights, enshrined in our constitution, rather than being upheld as inviolate, are too often seen as impediments to the expansion of the state.”

Sen. Madsen is now one of several elected officials to register Libertarian and/or endorse the ticket including: Max Abramson – State Representative (NH), Tom Campbell – Representative (CA), Laura Ebke – State Senator (NE), Dawson Hodgson – State Senator (RI), Danny Jones – Mayor (Charleston, WV), Jeff Kraus – Mayor (Bozeman, MT), Nicholas Schwaderer – State Representative (MT), Lisa Torraco – State Senator (NM), Jesse Ventura – former Governor (MN) and Daniel Zolnikov – State Representative (MT).
