Posted: Updated:

Tusconan David Nolan, one of the founders of the Libertarian party, has died.

He was driving last night when he suffered a stroke and crashed. He died just two days before his 67th birthday.

Nolan helped start the Liberatarian party in 1971, after disagreeing with President Richard Nixon's implementation of price and wage controls.

Nolan ran as a candidate for Congressional District 8 in 2006, and most recently ran against John McCain, Rodney Glassman and Jerry Joslyn for the U.S. Senate seat in last month's midterm election.

He's survived by his wife, Elizabeth.
