Tony Jones was a Libertarian candidate for Lieutenant Governor of Rhode Island in the 2014 elections. This was the first time that the party had a statewide nominee on the ballot in a midterm year.
In 2016, three candidates ran for Rhode Island House of Representatives under the Libertarian banner. Daryl Gould was a candidate for District 67 representative for Barrington and Warren; William Hunt, Jr. was a candidate for District 68 representative for Warren and Bristol; Analee Berretto was a candidate for District 69 representative for Bristol and Portsmouth.
