Libertarian Party presidential nominee Gary Johnson will make a campaign swing through North Carolina over the weekend, scheduling a day of events in conjunction with the LP’s gubernatorial candidate Barbara Howe. The pair will participate in a “Liberty 5K Fun Run” in the morning, then Johnson will attend a small fundraiser at lunch.
In the evening, Johnson, Howe and Michael Munger will speak at the LPNC’s Presidential Dinner. That event is designed as a fundraiser with tickets starting at $100 per person.
Howe appears to be one of the more promising Libertarian candidates for statewide office this year, recently polling as high as 9% in the somewhat competitive 3-way race. In the presidential race, a May poll had Johnson capturing 6% of the vote in North Carolina.
