Spangle: John Monds is the Sleeper in the LP POTUS Race

After Amash dropped out, everyone focused on Hornberger, Vermin, Gray, and Jorgensen. I think John Monds is about to sneak into the top tier and could make an upset. He gives radical ideas in a pragmatic and has shown in Georgia that he has broad appeal. He got over a million votes in a two-way race in 2008. I felt his debate performance tonight was very strong, and by the end, he had converted some folks in the live stream comments. Here is his closing statement, and I think you’ll see what I mean.

As a former delegate to the Libertarian Party conventions, my criteria for selecting a candidate to support in the Presidential race are as follows:

  1. An understanding of the libertarian philosophy.
  2. Temperament and Character
  3. An understanding of the job of President.
  4. Experience in running for office.
  5. The ability to attract media.
  6. Would I be embarrassed or proud in recommending them to friends and family?

Monds may be the only candidate that ticks those boxes for delegates at the upcoming convention in a fulfilling way.
