NPC Luncheon with Libertarian Presidential Ticket Johnson & Weld

NPC Luncheon with Libertarian Presidential Ticket Johnson & Weld

July 7, 2016 12:30 PM

Location: Holeman Lounge

The Libertarian Party presidential ticket – former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson and former Massachusetts Gov. William Weld – will outline why they think a third-party effort may be more likely to succeed this year than in past elections at a July 7 National Press Club luncheon.

Johnson and Weld were nominated at the Libertarian convention in late May and are promoting an agenda of fiscal conservatism and social liberalism.

Voter discontent with the two presumptive major party choices – Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump – gives them a chance to break through, they will argue.

Lunch will be served at 12:30 p.m., with remarks beginning at 1 p.m., followed by a Q&A session ending at 2 p.m. Tickets cost $24 for National Press Club members (NPC Members may purchase 2 tickets at this rate), and $38 for non-members. For questions, please email or call 202-662-7501. Tickets must be paid for at time of purchase.

Club members who wish to attend the pre-luncheon reception must RSVP separately to 48 hours before the event. Space may be limited. You must have a paid reservation to the luncheon to attend the VIP reception.

To submit a question for our speaker in advance, put JOHNSON in the subject line and email to before 10 a.m. on the day of the luncheon.
