Yes, it is confirmed -- though you wouldn't know it by reading any of the blogs going on at the convention that Ernest Hancock defeated the LNC's pick to chair the Libertarian National Committee in a straw poll conducted with great fanfare at the LP's Leadership Conference in Auston, Texas yesterday.
I cannot help but be certain that had anyone else won it would be hailed on the LP's official blogs and other interested pundits web sites. How this happened was probably debated into the wee hours in some circles to figure out how to make sure this never happened again. In the mean time I am going to savor the news, and enjoy the loss of sleep by a few.
This may also herald well, that despite the current LNC's attempts to keep the activists the heck away from the Convention in St. Louis, that there is hope for them to reclaim the Party, the platform and the LP's soul at a time when this country needs it most.
More news and hopefully video when it becomes available.
