Lincoln Chafee Ends Libertarian Run for President

Yes, there is still a Presidential election happening in 2020 with all of this craziness, and yes the Libertarian Party has candidates running for President. One of those candidates, Lincoln Chafee has ended his bid for the Libertarian nomination.

Former Rhode Island governor and U.S. senator Lincoln Chafee has ended his run for president as a Libertarian.

Chafee said in a Facebook post on Sunday that he looks “forward to helping other Libertarians seeking office.” He said his campaign was changed by the coronavirus but had a successful transfer to virtual connections amid the outbreak.

Chafee was a Republican in the U.S. Senate and became an independent after losing his seat in 2006. He was elected Rhode Island governor in 2010 as an independent and became a Democrat in office. He didn’t run for reelection but mounted a short-lived run for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2015.

The nomination for the Libertarian candidate is still going strong with many candidates vying.
