According to this post at the American Spectator.
When former Rep. Bob Barr arrives in Kansas City on Saturday for the Heartland Libertarian Conference, organizers expect him to launch an exploratory committee for the Libertarian Party presidential nomination. Barr is meeting with his political team on Friday to firm up plans. Right now, he’s expected to fly into the city at about noon Saturday and address the conference in the early afternoon.
The Barr launch is getting to be an open secret among conference-goers. Advocacy Ink, the firm that handles Barr’s public relations, is advertising the speech to local and national reporters. Mike Ferguson, the de jure organizer of the conference, is scrambling to deal with a crush of new media requests.
OK. Assuming Barr becomes the LP’s nominee, how does this impact the race for President? Would the roughly 20% of Democrats who currently say they’ll abandon the nominee consider Barr? Would disaffected Republicans who don’t like McCain vote for Barr?
