Gary Johnson to Seek Libertarian Nod For President

Posted by | December 28, 2011 15:11 | Filed under: Top Stories

Former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson, formerly a Republican, has been liberated.

Calling his choice “both a difficult decision-and an easy one,” in a statement, Johnson decried the Republican presidential nomination process and pledged to bring a “libertarian voice” to the 2012 race.

Johnson blasted the inclusion of “candidates with no national name identification like Herman Cain, Rick Santorum, and John Huntsman” as well as “candidates with no executive experience like Michele Bachmann and Rick Santorum” in presidential debates while he was “arbitrarily excluded by elitist media organizations in New York.”

…And after “appeals to the Republican National Chairman for basic fairness were ignored,” Johnson said he concluded that “the best answer is the simplest.”

“I’m a Libertarian in belief. I successfully governed as a Libertarian in everything but the name, and I am running for president as a Libertarian.”
