Gary Johnson and other presidential hopefuls will participate in a Libertarian Party debate Saturday afternoon in Orlando.
Johnson, the former New Mexico governor, who dropped his bid for the Republican nomination last month, will be joined on the debate stage by party activist Lee Wrights, Kiowa Nation member and Afghan war veteran R.J. Harris, author and documentary filmmaker Bill Still, former Texas Libertarian Party chair Roger Gary, entrepreneur Leroy Saunders and Carl Person.
The presidential debate, held as part of the Libertarian Party of Florida convention at the Embassy Suites, will be open to the public.
All the above candidates have been in past debates of LP presidential candidates, except for Leroy Saunders. The Sun-Sentinel adds
Libertarian front-runner Gary Johnson will campaign in the state this week, including a stop in Fort Lauderdale on Wednesday.
He also plans to attend the state Libertarian Party conference in Orlando Feb. 10 to 12 — all part of seeking the party’s nomination at a national convention in May in Las Vegas.
Johnson will visit the Tampa area on Tuesday, where he will speak at 3 p.m. at the University of South Florida.
And on Wednesday, he will meet with the Broward County Libertarian Party at 7 p.m. at the Denny’s restaurant, 3151 NW 9th Ave., in Fort Lauderdale.
