After the former governor of Massachusetts and original Libertarian (and former Libertarian for Life) Bill Weld left the Libertarian Party (again) for the GOP, the group The People for Bill Weld declared Vermin Supreme the presumptive nominee of the Libertarian Party and offered their endorsement. Quickly following suit, Bill Weld has privately come out in strong support of the new presumptive nominee.
Governor Bill Weld’s endorsement is Vermin Supreme’s highest profile endorsement for the 2020 presidential race since world-renowned journalist from the Sacramento Bee Ryan Sabalow endorsed Vermin Supreme.
Other recent endorsements include Missouri Republican and atheist Austin Petersen declaring Vermin Supreme to be his god. In 2018, Austin Petersen received 8.3% of the vote in the Republican primary for US Senate in Missouri.
