A source forwards this unconfirmed reporting about today’s convention of the Libertarian Party of Nevada:
Reported by participants on site
Libertarian Party of Nevada held its annual convention today at the Nugget Hotel in Sparks, Nevada.
The state party will not field a candidate for US Senate against Harry Reid. Wayne Root argued for NOTA. The Convention agreed, rejecting Jim Burns for the US Senate nomination in favor of NOTA by a vote of 22 to 10. The Nevada Convention attempted to nominate Wayne Root for US Senate, but Root declined because he stated he was interested only in focusing on his race for National Chair.
Arthur Lampitt Jr wins the nomination for Governor.
A series of bylaw proposals were presented by party radicals, including one to abolish dues. All the bylaw proposals failed. No resolution to condemn the registration fee was presented. Sources state that it would have lost badly.
Candidates Ernie Hancock and Wayne Root gave speeches on their race for LNC Chair. Candidates Mark Hinkle and George Phillies did not appear.
No straw poll was held. Attendees flocked to Root afterward, giving many the impression he won the affection of those delegates in attendance.
All 13 delegate slots for the 2010 National Convention were filled.
[On a related note: at last weekend’s California LP Executive Committee meeting following the LPCA convention, a resolution to condemn the NatCon registration fee was tabled for later consideration.]
