The Libertarian Party of Connecticut is a statewide affiliate of the U.S. Libertarian Party. According to the bylaws posted on its web site, its purpose is "to engage in political, educational, and social activities in order to preserve, protect, promote and defend individual freedom and conduct the following activities consistent with the Statement of Principles of the National Libertarian Party..." A list of six principles, including "supporting National Libertarian Party candidates," follows this statement.

The party leadership declined to endorse celebrity author Ann Coulter in a run for Congress in 2000. As a result, her congressional campaign did not take place. [1] [2]
