Johnson, Weld nominated by Libertarians for president, veep

libertarian party 2016 presidentTwo-term Massachusetts governor William Weld became the vice presidential nominee for the Libertarian Party at its nominating convention Sunday night.

Earlier Sunday, the delegates elected two-term New Mexico governor Gary Johnson to be the party’s presidential nominee.

“This is the highest-profile ticket in the Libertarian Party’s history,” said Nicholas Sarwark, Libertarian Party Chair. “And it comes at a time when Americans yearn for a credible alternative to Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton.”

Weld won 441 votes on the second ballot, barely over the required majority of votes needed. Larry Sharpe, a trainer and coach for executives, came in second place with 409 votes.

The Libertarian, Democratic, and Republican parties are the only political parties in the United States expected to be on the ballot in all fifty states this November.
