It appears that the Libertarian Party will be getting its own nationally televised debate after all.

Libertarian Party presidential candidate and former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson confirmed on his Tumblr page that the Libertarian Party will get its own nationally televised presidential debate on Fox Business’s "Stossel":

The Gary Johnson 2016 campaign has confirmed with Fox Business’s Stossel that Gov. Johnson will be delighted to participate in a televised debate among Libertarian Party presidential candidates, hopefully in March. We will of course leave the formal announcement of the debate details and date to the Stossel show, but want to express our gratitude to Mr. Stossel for working to find a date for this important event that will not disrupt any planned Libertarian Party activities and that is actually doable for all the candidates who are involved.

Other libertarian candidates include, but are not limited to, Austin Petersen and John McAfee.

Petersen is a political commentator, businessman, and activist. He was the Director of Production with FreedomWorks before leaving in 2013 to start his own business, Stonegate LLC, which is a media and consulting firm. Petersen also publishes the online magazine The Libertarian Republic.

McAfee developed the first anti-virus program aptly named McAfee.

There are no details as of yet to the time and date of the debate.
