ORLANDO, Fla. — Former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson secured the Libertarian Party’s nomination for president Sunday, capping off the party’s weekend-long biennial convention.
The nomination came after an often raucous nominating convention, in which Johnson was unable to obtain the necessary 50-plus percent of convention delegates on the first round of balloting. After the first round, officials from the five major Libertarian campaigns jockeyed for delegates, though Johnson’s nomination was never really in doubt, having fallen only six delegates short in the first round, out of a total of 925 votes cast. He ultimately finished with 55.8 percent of delegates supporting him.
