The County Development and Enhancement Program (CDEP) is the Libertarian National Campaign Committee’s 5 year plan to build the LP’s political machine from the ground up.
This is a huge commitment of the limited time and financial resources of the LNCC. The cost over the year for travel, lodging, materials and support averages out to $9,000 per state ($45,000 total). But we believe that to win elections we need to help develop strong county parties. The county party serves as the local backbone for campaigns. They provide candidates with resources, contacts, media, trained volunteers and donors. Without a well-oiled local political machine, candidates are not just spinning their wheels…they’re also reinventing it every cycle.
Your contribution of $50 - $100 - $500 - $1,000 or more will help ensure the success and growth of this program.
