On today’s episode of The Brian Nichols Show, we welcome Erika Kolenich, Libertarian candidate for Governor of West Virginia in 2024. Brian and Erika dive deep into why she’s running and what she hopes to accomplish. They discuss the major problems facing West Virginia, like the crisis in the jail system and the failures of the Republican establishment to deliver on promises of change.

Erika outlines her plans for criminal justice reform to reduce overcrowding in jails by releasing nonviolent drug offenders. Erika argues this would also help fill job vacancies across the state. She also digs into cutting burdensome regulations to make it easier for small businesses to thrive. Her goal – bust down barriers and let the free market work its magic.

The conversation shifts to a lively debate around social issues and the boundaries between parental rights, government overreach, and potential harm. They analyze tough questions around things like drag queen story hours through a libertarian lens.

As they wrap up, Brian challenges Libertarian candidates to run smarter campaigns that focus on meeting voters where they are instead of just winning arguments. Erika makes an appeal to West Virginians to get involved with the Libertarian Party and support her insurgent campaign to shake up the establishment.
