Libertarian Presidential Candidates Debate

The Libertarian Party of North Carolina will host the only presidential debate scheduled in North Carolina during the 2016 primaries March 7 from 9 to 10:30 p.m. EST.

It  will be webcast via a Google Hangout on Air viewable on the LPNC’s YouTube channel. The debate will feature five leading candidates for the Libertarian presidential nomination: Gary Johnson, Austin Petersen, Steve Kerbel, Darryl Perry, and Jack Robinson.

Carolina Journal Associate Editor Barry Smith will moderate the debate from a location in Raleigh. Candidates will participate from locations across the nation.

The debate will be held eight days prior to North Carolina's March 15 Presidential Primary. Participants in the debate were selected based on the results of an online poll conducted by the LPNC which included all candidates who will appear on the primary ballot.

Watch the debate here.
