The Park Record of Park City, Utah, notes that a vice presidential candidate owns a vacation home in the area and lives there part-time. He is Wayne Allyn Root, on the Libertarian Party ticket with Bob Barr. Root is a Las Vegas odds maker; he owns WinningEDGE International, which determines odds for people who gamble on sporting events.
Now betters in England say the Barr-Root ticket has a 25-to-1 chance of winning. “You could call it a long shot,” says Root in an interview with the Park Record. “We’re an underdog.”
Still, Root says: “Our plan is win, period.”
