Libertarians Sidle Up to Barr

May 26, 2008 6:54am

After six rounds of voting, the more than 650 delegates to the Libertarian Party Convention in Denver picked former Rep. Bob Barr, R-Georgia, as their presidential nominee.

"I’m sure we will emerge here with the strongest ticket in the history of the Libertarian Party," Barr said. "I want everybody to remember that we only have 163 days to win this election.  We cannot waste one single day."

Barr was controversial among Libertarians for having voted for the PATRIOT Act and the Defense of Marriage Act, but he told delegates he had changed and would kill the former and tweak the latter.

Another former Republican — Vegas handicapper Wayne Root — is Barr’s Veep.
