Description

When the leading 2016 Libertarian nominee for president, Gary Johnson, announced that William Weld, the two-term former Republican governor of Massachusetts, would serve as his running mate, it was supposed to be a no brainer stroke of genius. The hope was the powerful two-governor ticket could emerge as a true third-party alternative. But at the Libertarian National Convention in Orlando, it could all fall apart. Anti-authoritarian Libertarian Party activists are increasingly and loudly critical of Weld, who joined their party only weeks ago. Johnson seems to sense his dream ticket could be in trouble. The former two-term governor of New Mexico was booed at a convention forum on Thursday for calling Weld “the original libertarian.” Asked if he his reception was worrisome, Weld told POLITICO, “I wouldn’t use the word worrisome, but I would say the convention is highly unpredictable." http://www.politico.com/story/2016/05/gary-johnson-william-weld-libertarian-ticket-convention-223682 http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com
