Yesterday, former Congressman Ron Paul, the Libertarian Party’s 1988 presidential nominee and lifetime party member, endorsed Joshua Smith for chairman of the Libertarian National Committee in a video posted on Twitter.
Paul believes that Smith, who worked on Paul’s 2008 presidential campaign, has the organizational experience and philosophic integrity to do well as chair.
Smith’s opponents for the position include D.C. party chair Joe Bishop-Henchman.
The election is to be held at the second half of the 2020 Libertarian National Convention, scheduled for July 9 through 12 in Orlando. The committee will replace current chairman Nicholas Sarwark who has held the position since 2014. He decided not to seek reelection this cycle.
