MIAMI – The Libertarian Party of Florida is pleased to host a Dinner with Gov. Bill Weld this month to raise proceeds for the state party.
“Governor Weld’s involvement in the party is an inspiration,” said Marcos Miralles, LPF Chairman. “The Libertarian Party is now the home of current elected officials, former elected officials, and community members who wish to create an environment for all to thrive.”
Miralles said Gov. Weld gladly accepted the invitation to assist the state party after the two met at the recent Libertarian Party National Convention in New Orleans.
Weld was Massachusetts governor from 1991 to 1997. In 2016, he was Gov. Gary Johnson’s running mate in what became the most successful LP presidential showing in the party’s history. The Johnson / Weld ticket garnered more than three percent of the popular vote.
Weld is said to be considering a 2020 presidential run, although no formal announcements have been made. June 20, George Will wrote in The Washington Post Weld brings together “what a broad swath of Americans say they favor: limited government, fiscal responsibility, free trade, the rule of law, entitlement realism and other artifacts from the Republican wreckage.”
The dinner will be held Aug. 29 at Texas de Brazil, 300 Alton Rd Ste. 200, Miami Beach. Until Aug. 20, reservations are $200. After, $250.
