PENN TWP — The Libertarian Party’s candidates for governor and lieutenant governor spoke with interested Butler County voters Saturday afternoon.

Matt Hackenburg, the party’s gubernatorial candidate, and Tim McMaster, the Libertarian candidate for lieutenant governor, gathered with interested voters in the Hardwood Cafe from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.

Some in attendance wore shirts emblazoned with the phrase “Defend the Guard,” model legislation advanced in numerous states which would prohibit the use of state National Guard units in foreign conflicts. Such legislation is a key part of both Hackenburg’s and McMaster’s platforms.
