John McAfee identifies the man to run his US Presidential campaign

John McAfee takes a step or two forward in his bid to be on the ballot for the 2020 US Presidential election…

The story so far. Controversial cryptocurrency advocate John McAfee first ran for the office of US President back in 2016. He didn’t secure the Libertarian Party nomination that he sought, and more recently, announced that he was going to run again for President in 2020. Furthermore, he added that he had no intention of winning, and that he would be using his campaign to raise the profile of crypto, and get it on the US agenda.

Then, on top of that, he’d dallied with the idea of setting up his own political party this time around, rather than attempting to secure the Libertarian Party nomination again. But as per his latest Tweet, he now seems to have had a small about turn. McAfee has announced the identity of his campaign manager for his upcoming campaign, and in doing so, has confirmed that he’ll be attempting to fight under the Libertarian banner.

Here’s the Tweet in question…

Just because a campaign manager has been appointed, of course, doesn’t mean that there isn’t a very long road ahead. The full field of candidates for the Libertarian nomination is not yet known, but McAfee is unlikely to have anything close to a clear run at it. That said, he’s already gathering quite some profile, and is likely to be one of the best known candidates looking to secure said nomination. He’s got a busy two years ahead of him…
