On May 23 at the online Libertarian National Convention, the Libertarian Party nominated Clemson University psychologist Jo Jorgensen, the party’s 1996 vice presidential nominee, for president on the fourth ballot.

When all the swamp critters flee your campaign and the most honest man in Washington is all who remains, you must be doing something right. That is exactly what has happened to Judge Roy Moore this past month.
