Breaking news in the world of Libertarian politics. From Reason.com
Judge Jim Gray, the 2012 Libertarian Party (L.P.) vice presidential nominee and the first sitting jurist to come out against the drug war way back in 1992, announced to his email list Monday that he will seek the party’s presidential nomination in tandem with vice presidential candidate Larry Sharpe.
The L.P., America’s third-place finisher in the previous two presidential elections, is scheduled to determine its 2020 ticket during a national convention on May 21-25.
This is big news on the VP front. Larry Sharpe ran a great campaign for New York governor and has been adamant that he wouldn’t be running for office any time soon. Gray and Sharpe bring a new dynamic to the race that is currently being dominated by Jacob Hornberger.
