Wrong, Katy Tur, Ross Perot Didn’t Run for President as a Libertarian

Posted on 01 June 2016

H. Ross Perot was many things back in the '90s -- wealthy businessman with a penchant for charts and conspiracy theories, insistent prophet warning of fiscal ruin, two-time presidential candidate, and the basis for one of Dana Carvey's best impersonations on Saturday Night Live -- but one thing he was not was a libertarian.

Which made it surprising to hear Perot described this way from someone who should know better, reporter Katy Tur, who's covering the Trump campaign for NBC.
