The 2023 South Carolina Libertarian Party Convention was held the weekend of November 10-12, 2023 in North Charleston, SC.
The convention featured a debate between some of the (qualifying) presidential candidates. Interviews were scheduled with all of the candidates listed as attending as of October 22, 2023, and one of the two others since listed as attending.
The interviews will be published on Independent Political Report and referenced on this page. It will be a ten question format, with several in multiple parts. I hope to conclude each interview in ten minutes or less of each candidate’s time.
Followup political analysis of the candidates and the evening’s debate will be published on Third Party Watch.
The best-laid plans of mice and men…
As noted when this was first posted the day before the convention, I planned to interview five candidates. All six announced candidates appeared at the convention and I was able to get solid sit-down interviews with each of them. 160 minutes of recordings. Yup! Nearly three hours. Add in the analysis of the debate, and we (my ten fingers) are looking at possibly a day or two to sort all this out and produce a good article (or articles) covering each of the interviews. Fortunately as of this update it is Sunday and I hate football.
To start, the following was published on IPR Saturday evening about 11pm.
