Former Republican Massachusetts Governor William Weld, who was in the early '90s often talked about as a libertarian-leaning GOPer with his basic sort of fiscally conservative, sort of socially liberal combo, is now talking seriously about connecting his current GOP run for governor of New York with the Libertarian Party as well--in a ballot fusion move, since the New York Conservative Party, which Republicans often claim, is taken. Stephen Gordon over at Hammer of Truth has some links and begins summing up the interlibertarian debate about Weld's bonafides. (He's apparently not 100 percent on eminent domain and full drug legalization.)
