Jo Jorgensen Wins Libertarian Party Presidential Nomination

Source: Reason

In a day-long virtual meeting, after four ballots, the 1,035 delegates assembled for the Libertarian Party's online convention selected Jo Jorgensen as their presidential candidate.

She won with slightly over 51 percent of the vote (not every delegate voted in every round) on that fourth ballot, with 524 votes. Jacob Hornberger came in second, with nearly 28 percent of the vote. Vermin Supreme came in third, with 20 percent of the final vote.

Reason ran an interview with Jorgensen, a lecturer in psychology at Clemson who was the party's vice presidential candidate on a ticket with Harry Browne in 1996, on Thursday.

The party's voting procedure involved six candidates officially in nomination: Jorgensen, Jacob Hornberger, Vermin Supreme, John Monds, Judge James Gray, and Adam Kokesh. (Members could vote for other people if they wanted, or for none of the above, and many did.)

1. Vermin Supreme has developed a following.

Perhaps he will get the nod for VP so we can watch him in the debate? That could be amusing.

6. Vermin Supreme sounds like a Trump alter ego

or maybe the name of a trusted advisor. Probably what Stephen Miller's nickname is.

8. They are all over Twitter with a hashtag #Imwithher

Started trending at 1 am our time early morning Russian time. The bots are working overtime. I really wish twitter would put in code to lock out those bots.

10. And they call communists or socialists utopian

There ainít nothing more utopian than libertarianism. In actual practice it is the theology (yes, I deliberately used that word) of the spoiled four year old.

11. Lincoln Chafee is the furthest thing from a Libertarian anyway

No wonder he didn't place.
