(NEW ORLEANS) The pre-Convention meeting of the Libertarian National Committee was called to order at 4:08pm with five minutes for public comment. 2016 Vice-Presidential nominee, Governor Bill Weld was present (shown seated in the far center of the photo, in the gallery along the back wall), but did not make any public comments prior to leaving partway through the meeting). Steward Flood, Chair of the Libertarian Party of South Carolina was recognized and offered his gratitude to LNC Chair Nicholas Sarwark for encouraging former South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford to register as a Libertarian following his defeat in the Republican primary for US House earlier this month. He also thanked LNC Secretary Alicia Matson for being the one who was able, following requests made to various other officials, to remove any reference to Vice-Chair Arvin Vhora from the LP website and other materials as representing the Libertarian Party of South Carolina.
Chuck Moulton was recognized and thanked the LNC for not making the Judicial Committee do anything this term.
