Gary Johnson at Steve Kubby Event – Nor CA

HANG LOOSE – Gary Johnson, former governor of New Mexico and honorary chairman of the OUR America Initiative, spoke Wednesday night at a special town hall meeting in South Lake Tahoe. Governor Johnson spoke on key issues such as cutting deficits, lowering taxes, immigration reform, legalizing marijuana and ending the war in Afghanistan.

Governor Johnson, a former ski racer and avid telemark skier, promised to return this winter and join city council candidate Steve Kubby for some world-class tree skiing at Heavenly. The former governor who is rumored to be considering a run for President in 2012, has traveled to 28 states, where he has met with various student and political groups that are concerned with the increase in government spending and the future of the American economy.

As Governor of New Mexico, from 1994 to 2002, Johnson was known for his commonsense business approach to governing. He eliminated New Mexico’s budget deficit, cut the rate of growth in state government in half and privatized half of the state prisons. During his term, New Mexico experienced the longest period without a tax increase in the State’s history. Additionally, Governor Johnson vetoed 750 bills and issued thousands of line item vetoes.

Since the launch of OUR America in December of 2009, Governor Johnson has garnered significant media coverage, recently appearing on several prominent national news programs, including the Hannity Show, FOX News, FOX Business Network, CNBC, MSNBC, The Colbert Report, and Real Time with Bill Maher, as well as on hundreds of radio programs around the country.

    Awesome! Now if only Johnson ran as a Libertarian, Johnson-Kubby would be a hell of a ticket. I understand why it’s more advantageous for him to run as a Republican, though. I don’t see the Republicans nominating Kubby, LOL.

    Minor nit: is this a press release from Kubby, from Johnson, or an original IPR article? I’m on Kubby’s list, but I didn’t get a press release like this.

    If it’s an IPR original, “known for his commonsense business approach to governing” may be a bit too editorial, although I agree with it.

    That would be nice, but even if Johnson (or Paul) somehow won the Republican nomination, I think they would probably want to balance their ticket more.

    Johnson could run in the LP primary in New Hampshire and the LP caucuses in Iowa in 2012.

    That would be pretty cool, but wouldn’t doing so hurt his chances/standing in the Republican Party by bringing his party loyalty into question?

    Oh brother is this a pile of shit. Ron Paul should be long discredited by libs as a gop reactionary and/or cp endorsing counterrevolutionary. paulie has no cred calling himself a left lib & talking favorably or AT ALL about Ronulan Paulnut. Gary Johnson-gop diseased. Kubby-kissyface rightist Root after Ruwart handed vp to him&Kubby lost to him. The hand gesture in this picture should be Kubby giving Johson his middle finger. lg rightist lover.
    What a circle jerk of losertarians.

    The Gary Johnson campaign has promised to address this issue and requested that I take down the blog article. I have consented but if this issue comes up at CPAC, you will know who broke the news first.
