Perry reboots POTUS run as write-in campaign

Darryl W. Perry 2016 - Newsletter #17 - Darryl W. Perry Announces Limited Presidential Write-In Campaign (press release):
September 29, 2016 - "Darryl W. Perry, embarked on his Presidential Campaign ... with three goals in mind: 1) to run the most libertarian presidential campaign in history; 2) to proclaim the ideas of liberty as boldly and as often as possible; and 3) to give as many people as possible the opportunity to vote for an actual libertarian in November.
"After the 2016 Libertarian Party National Convention ... Perry issued a statement saying he had 'accomplished two-thirds of the goals I set for my campaign. I ran the most consistent libertarian campaign to date'.... Perry, who was officially endorsed by the NH Liberty Party at their convention in February, added, ... 'I will not be continuing my campaign through November.'
Since then, numerous people have asked for a way to give people the ability to vote for a philosophical libertarian for President [so] Perry decided to file declarations of intent to be a write-in candidate in a handful of states where a slate of electors is not required....
"Darryl’s focus will remain at the state and local level.... In addition, the Darryl W. Perry Presidential Campaign does not intend to raise any funds or have any expenditures towards this limited write-in campaign. Perry says, 'I do not make this decision lightly, however I have the ability to not let another election cycle go by without a philosophical libertarian candidate in the general election.'"

National Libertarian Party Attacks “Rogue” New Hampshire Chairman in Press Release | Free Keene - Ian Bernard:
October 1, 2016 - "Now, rather than do the principled thing and follow the Seacoast LP’s request of officially withdrawing Johnson and Weld as their candidates, the LP’s National Committee has issued press release attacking Darryl by calling him a 'rogue' and saying further that they are, 'committed to fully supporting the nominee of the delegates at convention and will continue to do so with all available resources.'
"No one should be surprised to see the national LP double down on their unprincipled hack candidates. It’s the lowest point for the party in more than a decade of falling away from their principles."

Free Virginia: Radical Reaction - Marc Montoni, founding member, LP Radical Caucus:
September 29, 2016 - "Perry did not discuss his plan with the Libertarian Party Radical Caucus Board of Directors.  We were ambushed with the news.
"The bylaws of the Radical Caucus provide for resigning from formal membership in the Radical Caucus simply by publicly supporting another party's candidate against a Libertarian Party candidate.... Running against the Libertarian nominee qualifies.....
"Perry certainly knew this action would be in conflict. He knew the bylaws and knew that provision. He also knew this would be unacceptable to a lot of us. Yet he ambushed us with his announcement and did it anyway....
"Mr Perry's announcement was his resignation from formal membership in the LPRC."
