The former two-term Governor of New Mexico, Gary Johnson, has won the
Presidential nomination of the Libertarian Party on the first ballot.
Facing three opponents in Lee Wrights, Carl Person, and Jim Burns,
Johnson needed a majority vote on the first ballot in order to win.
.... Governor Johnson ... told a story about his daughter, who called
and said that he’d gotten his ass handed to him in the C-SPAN-broadcast
debate last night. He invited Lee Wrights up on stage to thank him for
being a gentleman. They briefly embraced and Lee Wrights told the
audience to help Johnson get elected.
