Since former Congressman Bob Barr has announced that he has going to run for President, two Libertarian candidates have dropped out to endorse him, Bob Jackson and Daniel Williams. Former Senator Mike Gravel is also running for the Libertarian nomination for president. With the entrance of Bob Barr into the race there has been a shake up among the candidates.

Beside the two candidates who have dropped out other candidates have shifted their strategies. Bob Jackson was ranked 4th on the Libertarian Party site among presidential candidates by amount of funds raised before dropping out. Wayne Allyn Root who is ranked first on the same site has recognized that it is going to be a challenge for him to beat the former congressman. Once he enters into the debates with the other candidates it will be interesting to see what the outcome will be.
