Gary Johnson: Ron Paul supporters won’t vote for Mitt RomneySubmitted by stu2002 on Wed, 07/25/2012 - 12:29
The Libertarian Party presidential nominee, former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson, said Thursday that the key to winning his longshot bid for the presidency is to participate in the presidential debates this fall and to win over the support of Ron Paul backers.
The third-party candidate told Politico in an interview that he wants to participate because the debates are the only way to effectively get his message out to the American people.
“Anything can happen [in the debates]. That could be crash and burn. [Or] it could bring attention to what it is I am saying, my resume,” he told Politico. “I think a lot more people in this country describe themselves as libertarian as opposed to voting libertarian. I think my voice is representative of the fastest growing segment of American politics today, which is libertarian.”
