Forget about the Kentucky Derby and Cinco de Mayo! In Las Vegas today, the Libertarian Party held its national convention and nominated Gary Johnson, the former governor of New Mexico, to be their 2012 presidential candidate. During his acceptance speech, Johnson asked the 600-some delegates attending to nominate former California Superior Court Judge Jim Gray to be his running mate. In a vote that was slightly closer than Johnson′s win over long-time LP activist Lee Wrights, Gray edged out Wrights, too, for the vice presidential slot on the 2012 Libertarian Party ticket. The convention, which ran from May 2-6, was somewhat chaotic and disorganized, in true Libertarian fashion.
