The Libertarian Party holds their 2012 National Convention in Las Vegas this weekend, where they will choose their Presidential nominee.
The party is celebrating their 40th anniversary at this year's convention, themed "Liberty Will Win."
The Libertarian Presidential candidates will debate each other on Friday night, before a nominee is selected on Saturday. Former New Mexico Gov. and Republican Presidential candidate Gary Johnson is expected to be that nominee. He will debate Libertarian activist Lee Wrights. To take part in the debate, candidates had to receive at least 10% of support from convention delegates.
The candidates will make speeches on Saturday to convention delegates, who will then vote to choose the nominee.
