Nine people stood in front of the Alamo hoping to change the status quo of the state as the Libertarian Party of Texas announced its candidates for statewide office. The list included those for governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general and state, county and congressional delegations.

Kathy Glass, as Houston lawyer who was not at the event, is the party's candidate for governor. She ran previously in 2010 and came away with 2 percent of the vote. She said she believes the state has been run by a single party for too long.

In the last two weeks, Houston attorney Kathie Glass and conservative radio host and Fox News contributor Lisa Fritsch announced they would join in the GOP race for governor in 2014.

Glass also ran in the 2010 governor’s race and took just over 1 percent of the vote in that primary. Fritsch said she is running as the citizens candidate and that she would not be intimidated by the amount of money in Abbott campaign fund.
