Republican Liberty Caucus Advisory Board member and Chairman of the Our America Initiative, former New Mexico Governor Gary E. Johnson, yesterday announced that he is seeking the Republican nomination for President of the United States.
Governor Johnson appeared on Dylan Ratigan’s show on MSNBC, on FOX Business, and on John King USA with Jessica Yellin filling in for John King. View his appearance on John King USA, which was very good.
News articles about Governor Johnson’s campaign were featured in almost every major news outlet, including Politico.com, DailyCaller.com, USA Today, CBS News, ABC News, Wall Street Journal, Christian Science Monitor, and numerous other publications.
Governor Johnson has made a tremendous effort to meet with RLC members from across the country as Chairman of the Our America Initiative. Most recently, he spoke at the 2011 RLC National Convention. He is known for his pro-liberty positions on the issues confronting our country.
The RLC has not endorsed any Presidential candidates since Steve Forbes in 1996. We let our members decide who they want to support and only formally endorse a candidate if our chartered state affiliates unanimously agree on a candidate to endorse.
