Gary Johnson reportedly said on the debate stage that he was going to be a member of the Libertarian Party for the rest of his life. He also said that, should he lose the race for the nomination (an unlikely prospect), he would run for the office again in 2016.
Additionally, in an interview with Reason, 2008 Presidential candidate for the Libertarian Party nomination Mary Ruwart had some positive things to say about Johnson’s libertarian pedigree.
“My initial impressions of Gary Johnson are much more favorable than they were of Bob Barr, who endorsed Newt Gingrich for president,” she said.
When asked if Johnson is a libertarian, Ruwart said she believed he is.
“I would definitely say he is in the libertarian quadrant,” she answered.
Her full statement wasn’t exactly an endorsement–she also said, “We aren’t gaining anything by having a famous person at the top of our ticket, in terms of votes.”
