Chase Oliv­er cho­sen as Lib­er­tar­i­an Par­ty nom­i­nee for pres­i­dent

Chase Oliver chosen as Libertarian Party nominee for president

Polit­i­cal activist Chase Oliv­er has been named the Lib­er­tar­i­an Party’s 2024 pres­i­den­tial nom­i­nee.
The final vote on Sun­day night came down to Oliv­er or “none of the above” after author Michael Recten­wald was elim­i­nat­ed from con­tention. If Oliv­er were not cho­sen, the par­ty would have had com­pli­ca­tions with their rep­re­sen­ta­tion in November’s pres­i­den­tial elec­tion.
Oliv­er won the final vote with 60% sup­port­ing him, per Wash­ing­ton Post reporter Meryl Korn­field. In his vic­to­ry speech, he asked his fel­low par­ty mem­bers to help him “fight the war machine,” includ­ing the “geno­cide in Gaza.” He also demand­ed the Israeli hostages held by Hamas be released.
