Libertarians to Pick 2016 Nominee

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- The Libertarian Party will soon pick its presidential nominee from three candidates.

Delegates to the party's convention in Orlando on Sunday are scheduled to choose from former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson, anti-computer virus company founder John McAfee and Austin Petersen, the founder of The Libertarian Republic magazine.

Johnson was the party's nominee in 2012, getting about 1 percent of the general election vote.

But the party is hoping for a strong showing in November because of the deep unpopularity polls show for presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump and Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton.
