After the closing of the event on that Monday, May 30th, 2016, David Malekar gave one final broadcast live from Orlando, FL regarding the event and some personal thoughts.
A month later, we have seen a historic amount of Mainstream Media Press Coverage for Gary Johnson and Bill Weld. They have had Town Hall meetings on CNN, the Gary Johnson Facebook page has soared about 100k likes since before the convention, and many disgruntled Bernie Sanders fans have jumped aboard the Libertarian Train.
In closing, this article is dedicated to the now late Dr. Marc Allan Feldman, who sadly left this world on June 23rd, 2016. He is a Hero in the Libertarian Party, and in person. He helped saved the life of someone while at the LNC who had been a victim of a hit and run outside one of the entrances. You will be sorely missed. May the Party win many elections this year in your honor.
