Greetings from the Gary Johnson for President Campaign!
First and foremost –THANK YOU for everything you are doing to advance the cause of Liberty! Everyone around here knows what it takes to run for public office and you have our sincere gratitude.
I’m writing to share three exciting things with you
First, if you’re not already on our website at:
We’d LOVE to have you join us there. To do so just complete and return the one page application available at:
NOTE: You do not have to return it as a PDF, you can simply put that same information into the text of an email and return it to me directly if that’s easier.
Second, Governor Johnson will be hosting a conference call for ALL of our endorsed candidates this Wednesday at 6pm Pacific, 7pm Mountain, 8pm Central and 9pm Eastern Time. If you would like to be on that call, and have not already been endorsed by us, please get that Endorsement Request back to us asap. We’d love for you to join us on the call (If you have already been endorsed, or sent an application in within the past two weeks, you’ll be getting the dial in information and code in an email tomorrow.)
Third, All endorsed candidates will also be receiving Yard Signs and other materials in the mail from us. We also have a Facebook Page available for all endorsed candidates to share ideas, learn about the Governor’s and Judge Jim Gray’s schedules, and other support from us to you.
Lastly I’m here open to all ideas, suggestions, criticisms, and available to help in every possible way to maximize the number of votes for Governor Johnson and Judge Gray — and to maximize the positive impact that will have on YOUR campaign as well.
Thanks again for all your hard work for Liberty!
