Bill Weld

Weld-Nader '08


As David notes below, Republican William Weld is seeking the Libertarian Party's endorsement in his campaign to be governor of New York. He isn't the only candidate of another party seeking the Empire State Libs' support: Steve Greenfield of the Greens wants them to back his run against Sen. Hillary Clinton. I don't know how much support Greenfield has—too bad he isn't named Libertarianfield—but it's at least possible that the party will emerge on the other side of this weekend with both a Republican and a Green on its ticket, which if nothing else should puzzle anyone who's wondering whether the group belongs to the "left" or the "right."

Update: Weld got it, Greenfield didn't.
