Numerous individuals have reported to IPR that Gary Johnson or members of his campaign are contacting members of the Libertarian National Committee, one of the main decision-making bodies in the Libertarian Party.
At the same time, Wayne Root, the former Vice Presidential candidate of the Libertarian Party and At-Large member of the Libertarian National Committee, has left a comment at IPR suggesting that he has been involved in recruiting former Governor Gary Johnson to run for the Libertarian Party nomination for President.
Since I’ve been heavily recruiting Gary Johnson to LP for weeks…I had dinner with him in Baltimore a month ago…spent much time with his campaign senior advisor in the past few days…
I think it’s pretty clear I support Gary to be our Presidential nominee.
He continues later on in the comment:
Gary is the perfect candidate. Answer to my recruiting efforts.
The most fiscally conservative governor in America. Mr. Veto. Never allowed a spending or tax increase in 8 years as Governor.
Simpatico with me on almost every issue.
A Libertarian in every way…yet still a huge supporter of Israel.
The perfect LP candidate.
I’ll be going “all in” to help Gary.
More information will be made available as we receive it.
