Former Libertarian vice presidential candidate in Alaska this weekend

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - Spike Cohen, who was the Libertarian Party's vice-presidential candidate for the 2020 election, is in Alaska this weekend.

    The event is called the "Gold Rush" and is aimed at training Libertarian candidates on how to run successful campaigns as a third-party candidate. It is being held in Wasilla on Saturday.

    News of the North talked with Cohen about his travels. He said the idea for the training "spread like wildfire" and that the in-person event will now be live-streamed for potential candidates anywhere to join in.
