Libertarian presidential candidate Bob Barr to speak at ND

Author: Michael O. Garvey


Libertarian Party presidential candidate and former Georgia Rep. Bob Barr will speak Friday (Oct. 3) at 3 p.m. in the University of Notre Dames Washington Hall.

A question-and-answer period will follow Barrs hourlong talk.

Barr represented the 7th District of Georgia in the U. S. House of Representatives from 1995 to 2003, serving as a senior member of the Judiciary Committee, vice-chairman of the Government Reform Committee and member of the Committee on Financial Services. He now practices law with the Law Offices of Edwin Marger, and runs a consulting firm, Liberty Strategies LLC, headquartered in Atlanta.

After the Democratic and Republican conventions, Notre Dame’s president and student body president send letters of invitation to the major party presidential and vice presidential nominees to speak on campus. Candidates from other parties may be invited by recognized student groups or academic units. All candidates who speak on campus are asked to address a substantive issue in their talk rather than hold a campaign rally.

Barrs talk is sponsored by the College Libertarians of Notre Dame, a student group.
