Token count for LP presidential candidates

After more than a day of campaigns trying to round up tokens in order to appear in the debate and be considered for the nomination, the count is in for the Libertarian Party’s presidential candidates.

To participate in the debate, a candidate must receive 53 tokens. However, only 30 are required to have their name placed into nomination.


  • Gary Johnson: 263
  • Lee Wrights: 127
  • Carl Person: 28
  • Jim Burns: 27
  • Sam Sloan: 12
  • Rita Neumann: 3
  • James Ogle: 2
  • Jim Gray: 1
  • Lori Sunthonchart: 1

Candidates may still receive tokens to have their name place into nomination tomorrow. I’ll have the VP numbers as soon as they are available.

    Does the token differential between Johnson and Wrights mean that Wrights is basically farting in the wind?

    NewFed–I think it’s over on the first ballot with 60% to Johnson.

    Jim Burns is, at least in LP circles, the very definition of a “grandfather clause”. It’s a shame he didn’t quite squeak in.

    Johnson, Wrights, Person, Burns and possibly Sloan are being nominated. It was a lower threshold than the debate. 30 tokens vs 53

  6. Trent Hill

    Who nominated and seconded everyone?

    Love to see a post on that, Paulie. If not, could you post that info here?
