Newly elected Chairman of the Board Judge Jim Gray (Ret.) said, “On behalf of the Board of Directors, we wish Governor Johnson the greatest success in 2016 and immensely appreciate the work he has done at the helm of CBDS.”
Could this mean he will announce his intention to run for President?
At least one blogger thinks so. Writes J. Wilson at A Libertarian Future
Finally! The wait is over and Gary Johnson is officially running for President in 2016. There are many libertarians who have been waiting years for the Governor to make that decision. Speculation has been running rampant since at least 2014 when Gary Johnson first declared he “wanted to run for President” again.
According to Cannabis Sativa Inc. Gary Johnson has resigned as CEO to pursue “political opportunities”. That can only mean one thing.
First, Gary Johnson will have to run for the Libertarian Party’s nomination for President. Because Gary Johnson has waited so long to officially announce he’s running for President he faces an entirely different political landscape. It won’t be the walk in the park that getting the Libertarian Party nomination was in 2012.
While Johnson has been waiting in the wings for over a year talking about how he wanted to run for President a number of other candidates have entered the race. There are multiple well organized and well funded competitors to the incumbent nominee.
