Benjamin Leder, commonly known as Ben Leder, is a political activist in Trinidad, Texas. He's been active in the Libertarian Party since 2017. He is currently serving as a Republican Party precinct chair.

Announced as a presidential candidate on 24 March 2018; filed on 1 April 2018.


  1. Per a tied and controversial vote of the LPRC board, Ben Leder was determined to have automatically resigned his membership for opening opposing the purpose and goals of the caucus.
  2. A disputed ruling of the SLEC declared Leder's selection as Desarae Lindsey's replacement as illegitimate, splitting the Henderson County LP. The stated justification was that the bylaws' list of a minimum number of meetings per quarter was also a maximum. This split was ended when both factions held the same county convention.
