The Uncovered Politics blog recently ran a positive profile of Rob Sarvis, nominated by LP Virginia to run in the state’s gubernatorial campaign. here’s an excerpt:
The Libertarian Party of Virginia nominated Robert C. Sarvis for governor in a special state convention held Sunday afternoon in Waynesboro.
Though not quite a household name, the little-known Libertarian is an impressive candidate by almost any measure.
Raised in Northern Virginia, the 36-year-old Sarvis graduated from nationally-renowned Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology, a magnet school in Alexandria. After earning degrees in mathematics from Harvard University and the University of Cambridge, the over-achieving Libertarian candidate worked as a software developer in the Silicon Valley before obtaining a law degree from NYU and a Master’s degree in economics from George Mason University.
While at NYU, Sarvis co-founded the NYU Journal of Law & Liberty, a libertarian-leaning law journal.
