NOTED THIRD PARTY ADVOCATE RICHARD WINGER ENDORSES GOV. GARY JOHNSON FOR PRESIDENT
April 20, 2016, Salt Lake City, UT — Richard Winger, Publisher of Ballot Access News and nationally recognized advocate for more equitable treatment of independent and third party candidates, has endorsed Governor Gary Johnson for President.
One of the nation’s leading authorities on election law and ballot access, Winger is frequently quoted and called upon by the media, legislatures and the courts to share his expertise regarding the obstacles faced by third parties in U.S. elections. Ballot Access News is widely cited for its comprehensive coverage of election law and developments in all 50 states.
Announcing his endorsement of Johnson, Winger stated, “For the first time in decades, the media, commentators and, indeed, voters are taking a serious look at ‘third party’ options. The realities of ballot access and election law make it clear that the Libertarian nominee for President will be the likely ‘third’ option in November.
“That reality makes it more important than ever that voters have a credible and experienced third party candidate on the ballot. A successful two-term Governor, Gary Johnson will be that candidate, and I am pleased to support his candidacy.
“The time has never been better to disrupt the two-party stranglehold, and Gary Johnson has the very real potential to do just that.”
