Chris Rockhold selected as Libertarian nominee for Special Election 2017

After some question and answer time with the three candidates, any registered libertarian was allowed to cast a ballot for their candidate of their choice.

After one round of voting, Chris Rockhold received 17 out of the 20 total votes, easily winning that nomination.

Afterwards, we spoke with him about the upcoming special election, one he acknowledged would be difficult.

"I think the difficulty will be in just getting the name recognition and once people see where I stand on the issues and what my position is I think it will become less difficult once we get the name recognition out there," said Rockhold.

Independent candidates wanting to run have a week to turn in petitions with 3,000 signatures from registered voters to be included on April's Special Election ballot.
