It's a faction within the GOP. In a two-party system, you get factions, since politicians must associated with one of the two major parties to get elected. There are libertarians in Congress, for example. They're just not Libertarian Party members. Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) was a libertarian member of the Republican Party for decades, until he left Congress this year. There is now a small, but significant, libertarian GOP faction. The Democrats don't really have a libertarian faction. They went away with William Jennings Bryan.
