Lincoln Chafee ends Libertarian run for president
THE ASSOCIATED PRESSS – Former Rhode Island governor and senator Lincoln Chafee has ended his run for president as a Libertarian.
Chafee said in a Facebook post Sunday that he looks “forward to helping other Libertarians seeking office.”
He said his campaign was changed by the coronavirus but had a successful transfer to virtual connections amid the outbreak.
Chafee moved to Wyoming last year and joined the Libertarian Party.
He was a Republican in the U.S. Senate and became an independent after losing his seat in 2006.
Chafee was elected Rhode Island governor in 2010 as an independent and became a Democrat in office.
He mounted a short-lived run for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2015.
