On June 11th, Gary Johnson hosted an hour-long Google Hangout sponsored by his political advocacy committee, Our America Initiative. Typically, the former New Mexico governor and Libertarian Party presidential candidate hosts one Hangout a month.
Yours truly got the opportunity to talk to Gary for a little under seven minutes. I asked him about endorsing David Earl Williams III, a Ron Paul Republican running for Congress in Illinois’s 9th district (who voted for Gary Johnson in the 2012 presidential election and who has attended one Libertarian Party of Chicago meetup so far) and about whether or not Gary plans on running for office in the future. Gary mentioned he hadn’t completely ruled out a Senate run in 2014 and also added that he hasn’t discounted running as a Republican in the future.
