Sacramento California –
For Immediate Release:
… From the Desk of C. Michael Pickens,
Libertarian Party of California, NVC
I would love to endorse Gary Johnson for President.
Once he leaves the GOP and re-registers Libertarian, I will!
There’s been a lot of speculation about Gary running as our Candidate. From my perspective, he’s been running as a libertarian his entire political life.
Gary’s Campaign Motto is: “Live Free”. His positions on the budget, the war drugs and foreign policy are right in line with mine and most Libertarians. Gary Johnson is a Libertarian and has always been.
Governor Johnson will balance America’s budget, end the war on drugs and follow the spirit of our Constitution.
This last July at Freedom Fest, Gary and I discussed the idea of running for President as our LP nominee. This sounds better every day to both the Governor and the LP.
As libertarianism gains momentum here and around the world, Gary Johnson could get in front of the freedom tsunami by running as our Candidate.
A two-term Republican governor in a heavily Democratic state, he’s proven his electability.
But how would he govern? He vetoed more bills than all the other Governors in the USA, combined! At the same time, he balanced New Mexico’s budget. Gary’s track record proves he can and will get the job done.
Now is the time for Governor Gary Johnson to come home to the Libertarian Party!
