OFFICIAL EXPLANATION

When we read through the sentence the first time, we should take notice of the first three words: the construction "despite its representing" is extremely awkward.
We should eliminate (A) and (B). Choice (E) can also be easily eliminated, because it says that "Libertarians" represent the whole party where the sentence means to say that the "National Committee" represents it.

Choices (C) and (D) both sound OK; which one is the best? Choice (C) has an unnecessary "it is" after "nor," so overall, choice (D) is the easiest to understand.

The correct answer is Choice (D).
