The name might not mean much to many people and the press is stressing his ties to Ross Perot, perhaps as a way of of stressing Bob Barr’s seriousness as a third-party candidate. But I find Verney’s involvement in Barr’s campaign interesting. Conservatives of a certain bent may recall that Verney, who had been chairman of Perot’s Reform Party until he was replaced by a chairman loyal to Jesse Ventura, led the Perotista dead-enders in trying to deny the party’s nomination to Pat Buchanan in 2000. Barr’s candidacy could mark the first time paleos and Verney have been on the same side in a political fight since Buchanan first joined the Reform Party in the fall of 1999.
