C-SPAN To Broadcast Libertarian Convention

According to Ballot Access News, C-SPAN will have live coverage of key parts of the national Libertarian Party convention, which began on Thursday (yesterday) in Denver.

Expected to be televised are the Saturday evening session (8:00PM to 11:00PM Central time, which should feature debates among the presidential candidates) and all of Sunday's proceedings, starting at 9:30AM Central time, which will include the presidential balloting.

One of the candidates for the presidential nomination is Bob Barr, the former Republican congressman from Georgia who was part of the famed House class of 1994.

One of the keynote addresses will be delivered by Richard Viguerie of Virginia, the conservative direct-mail wizard who has most often been associated with the Republican Party.

Which begs the question: Why didn't C-SPAN broadcast any of the Constitution Party's national convention last month in Kansas City? The CP was founded in 1992 (as the U. S. Taxpayers Party), and this year's convention was the first one that C-SPAN has not covered.
