The governor started out early in his speech trying to reach out proclaiming, “I want you all to know, I am a Dr. Paul fan”. This, of course, drew a large applause.
He continued by saying, “Ron Paul asked me for my endorsement in 2008, and I readily gave him my endorsement”.
Speaking to an enthusiastic crowd, many libertarians, Johnson laid out his message, a very familiar one to the Liberty Movement- Let’s stop the spending, let’s end the wars, let’s abide by the Constitution of the United States.
