Happy Faso Day

So the official announcement of moderate C. Scott Vanderhoef as John Faso’s running mate will come at 1:00 today, the campaign says.

The timing, of course, is choreographed to coincide with the Conservative party’s endorsement of Faso at the pre-convention convention today.

Bill Weld, meanwhile, is affecting an attitude of complete disintest about Faso’s big day.

“We’re continuing to work to gain support in the Republican Party and the Independence Party,” said Andrea Tantaros, a spokeswoman for Weld.
