Libertarian Party fronts Barr/Root ticket for 2008

Denver – Wayne Allyn Root was selected on Sunday as the 2008 nominee for vice president at the Libertarian National Convention. Root will join former Congressman and Libertarian Party presidential candidate Bob Barr on the Libertarian ticket in Nov.

Endorsed by Barr following the selection of the presidential candidate, Root was selected as the vice president after two rounds of voting.

“Root brings a rarely seen excitement to the political process,” says Libertarian Party National Media Coordinator Andrew Davis. “His fire and passion are sure to ignite voters who are bored with the stale politics of the two-party system. Root’s spirit combined with Barr’s political experience creates a dynamite ticket that will blow apart the status quo politics of Republicans and Democrats.”

The Libertarian Party is America’s third largest political party, founded in 1971 as an alternative to the two main political parties.
