Video of yesterday’s debate among candidates for the Libertarian Presidential nomination at LP of Manhattan (h/t Bonnie S., Tom Knapp and George Phillies):
This debate is significant because it is the first one to include Gary Johnson since he has switched to the Libertarian race.
Also included were RJ Harris, Carl Person and Bill Still. Of the candidates who have been participating in other debates, Lee Wrights and Roger Gary were not there. Those two will first (that I know of) go up against Johnson in Grapevine, TX on February 25. RJ Harris, and possibly other candidates, will be in that debate as well.
Gary Johnson was also on the Chris Hayes show on MSNBC yesterdays morning. I will try to find video of that and post it as a separate article.
After the debate there was a straw poll. The results (h/t Tom Stevens):
Gary Johnson – 35 votes (66%)
R.J. Harris – 11 votes (20.8%)
Carl Person – 5 votes (9.4%)
Mary Ruwart (Write-In) – 1 vote (1.9%)
Ron Paul (Write-In) – 1 vote (1.9%)
Bill Still – 0 votes (0%)
