America's Independent Party has nominated Brian Rohrbough of Colorado as their vice-presidential candidate to serve on the AIP ticket with Alan Keyes.

Mr. Rohrbough is national president of American Right to Life, and his son was killed in the Columbine High School shootings.

Up till now the vice-presidential slot has been filled by "favorite sons" from the states. We had Marvin Sprouse as the Texas "stand-in", and since the convention was held two days after the
deadline, he remains the official candidate. If Keyes wins a plurality in Texas, the change will be made by the electors.

Which is probably to our advantage, since "Sprouse" is easier to spell than "Rohrbough".
