On April 29, 2010, Sam Sloan endorsed Wayne Allyn Root for National LP Chair. Mr. Sloan is the Manhattan Libertarian Party's Representative to the State Committee of the Libertarian Party of New York and a delegate to the upcoming Libertarian Party National Convention that will be held in St. Louis, Missouri over Memorial Day Weekend.
In endorsing Wayne Allyn Root, Mr. Sloan said:
Of the candidates for Chairman of the National Libertarian Party,Wayne Allyn Root is by far the most active and energetic. He constantly appears in the media on radio and TV talk shows. He is the author of several books on Libertarian philosophy. His political talk radio show, The Wayne Allyn Root Show, is broadcast in New York City, Los Angeles and Chicago. Root is a frequent guest on several nationally syndicated radio shows such as Savage Nation, The Jerry Doyle Show, and Mancow's Morning Madhouse. He has made numerous appearances on various programs on the Fox News Channel. He is a frequent speaker at Tea Party events across the United States. Root's political columns appear in the Las Vegas Review Journal and at Newsmax.com. I support Wayne Allyn Root for Chairman of the National Libertarian Party.
The effort to organize support for Wayne Allyn Root in New York State has been spearheaded by Dr. Tom Stevens, the State Representative of the Libertarian Party of Queens County, who supported Wayne Root for the Presidential nomination of the Libertarian Party in 2008 after Alden Link dropped out of the race. Alden Link, the Libertarian Party of New York's candidate for Lt. Governor also recently endorsed Wayne Allyn Root.
Two of Root's opponents, George Phillies and Ernie Hancock, have been making great efforts to recruit supporters in New York State. Mr. Phillies was a Guest Speaker at the LPNY's State Convention held in Albany, New York on Saturday, April 24, 2010. Mr. Hancock was a Guest Speaker at the Manhattan Libertarian Party's Annual Convention in January and is the MLP's featured speaker on Monday, May 10, 2010. Mr. Root has been given 15 minutes to speak at the upcoming meeting of the Manhattan Libertarian Party.
