Official Ron Paul Candidates

Editor's Note: I asked the campaign for a list of all the candidates Dr. Paul has endorsed so far, and this is what Jesse Benton sent me: (below)

Followup 5/7/2008: I received the following email from Tom Lizardo regarding Bill Johnson:

My name is Tom Lizardo. I work as Chief of Staff in Ron Paul's Congressional Office. Over the past several weeks, I have also been involved in assisting Dr Paul with the consideration of candidates who are seeking his endorsement for their campaigns. We have gone through the process of setting up a method by which candidates are to be considered for such endorsements. During that period, we have also received and reviewed requests from dozens of candidates.

Although Bill Johnson's name ended up on the endorsement list, he did not go through this process. In light of this fact, and in light of the revelations regarding his past statements and associations, Dr Paul has retracted the endorsement and hopes that, in the future, the process that has been put into place will mitigate the likelihood of similar errors.

Thank you for your inquiry on the topic.

Sincerely,

Tom Lizardo

Rob Alexander

Rob is a quality candidate. Even if Ron Paul didn't support him, he is worthy of the support of every Utahn. He is hard working, earnest, and honest. He has a positive outlook, and a good head on his shoulders.

NO MURRAY SABRIN????!!!!!!!!

Murray's the most important one. He's about to win the Republican nomination for SENATE, and has a long relationship with Ron Paul, and has been on message for decades! Inexplicable!

Rob Alexander - Official Ron Paul Candidate in the Mountain West

A couple days ago I had the following email conversation with Ron Paul's Chief of Staff, Tom Lizardo, indicating that Dr. Paul has agreed to endorse my candidacy for State Representative in Utah Legislative District 35:

Thank you, Tom. What about the possibilities for any of the following?:

_x_ To make an appearance in my state/district

Thanks,

Rob, how you promote it is really up to you. Different folks are making different types of strategic uses.

At some point we'll likely have a web site where endorsements are listed and, I would hope some of his lists will be available to candidates in the future too.

Thank you, Tom, that's great news! :-) I feel honored. Please thank Dr. Paul for me, and also thank him for his Memorial Day salute to veterans.

How would you recommend I promote the fact that Dr. Paul has agreed to endorse my candidacy?

Thanks,
Rob

I've now added an "Endorsed by Ron Paul" button below the "Donate" button on my campaign Web site.

Congratulations Rob! I am very excited for you and for Utah to have a liberty minded candidate. You could have a huge influence in the Utah legislature, since it is so small.

is their anyone

who's been supported by dr paul in the san diego, California area? id like to vote for him or her

I am a human becoming, help me to become.

Micahel Benoit

I don't know that RP has officially endorsed him, but Michael Benoit, running for Congress in San Diego, was instrumental -- key, actually -- in getting RP to San Diego for that wonderful brunch, booksigning and rally on May 23rd. He's also the organizer of two (three?) San Diego Ron Paul Meetup groups.

Ron Paul Candidate, Pat Dixon Wins Election!

Congratulations to Pat Dixon! He was endorsed by Ron and he was elected yesterday to the Lago Vista city council (near Austin, Texas). Pat is the Chairman of the Texas LP.
Way to go, Pat!

Unfortunately, Kevin Tunstall did not win

He put up one heck of a fight against the old Tom DeLay machine though.

It's not just Rehberg, Broun and Singh must go too

Tom Lizardo in Ron's DC office is responsible for approving the endorsements. He admitted last week that errors were made and a retraction of Bill Johnson's happened. But, more of these guys have to go:

Rehberg - the MT warmonger

Amit Singh: War profiteer and NSA spy guy who thinks the 4th amendment to the constitution is a "distraction". Fortunately, he won't get past Mark Ellmore in the primary, but this hurts Ron's credibility.

Paul Broun: Among other things, he considers himself the self-appointed master of morality:
http://www.military.com/features/0,15240,167090,00.html?ESRC...

Remember, these guys are getting the $$$ that we donated to Ron's congressional primary. I've already called the DC office to voice my disapproval. Here's the number: 202-225-2831.

Did we run out of real libertarian candidates that deserve our money?

I can't even begin to tell

I can't even begin to tell you how sick it makes us to know that rehberg could be getting some of the hard-earned money we donated to Dr Paul......

**the soul would have no rainbow if the eyes had no tears**

Call Ron's DC office 202-225-2831

And let them know where you stand.

add

JC cunningham from Massachusetts for US House of Reps

PLEASE REMOVE Rehberg - MT

from this list! Obviously, Rehberg's voting record has not been reviewed at all....there is No Way denny is a Ron Paul candidate and to continue to list him here is Damaging Dr Paul's image and credibility here in Montana thereby making our work much Harder. See the posts below for just a bit of supporting evidence (the list of evidence would be Much too long to post here) as to why Denny Rehberg has absolutely No business being on this highly esteemed list. Please Remove Him....thank you.

**the soul would have no rainbow if the eyes had no tears**

Important

Vern McKinley is a very smart candidate and the first Ron Paul Republican, who announced his candidacy against Frank Wolf (R-VA district 10) even before Dr. Paul announced his candidacy for president. The primary is on the 10th of June, thus not much time left, and if he wins the primary, he will probably win in November too as it is a GOP stronghold. Dr. Paul referred to him in congress years ago.

Can Dr. Paul or someone with his campaign contact him soon and arrange a personal meeting for an endorsement of him, with a youtube video (like with Amit Singh) as well as a fundraising banquet, perhaps on the same day as Amit's?

http://www.mckinleyforcongress.com

email: info @ mckinleyforcongress .com

www.libertymaven.com - that supports Dr. Paul 100% - has already had interview's with him and very impressed.
Vern has also been endorsed by the Republican Liberty Caucus, just like B J Lawson etc.

I have been thinking: can Dr. Paul or someone with him arrange for a Barry Goldwater Jr. and/or ex-gov. Gary Johnson endorsement and possible fundraising for Vern? This could gave additional strong effect, as Wolf would not be easy to beat.
I think any helpers in Virginia and neighboring states would also be welcomed
and donate for him also. He had a moneybomb on 1st of May, do not know how much money was raised. Vern has a very impressive CV and international experience.

He sent me the very same

He sent me the very same "Bush-ese" letter. He also voted For the Thought Crime Prevention Bill, voted For the Patriot Act, Refused to support any investigation whatsoever into Bush and Cheney's lies, war crimes, or the 978 laws they have allegedly broken. He says he supports the rights of Montanans but consistently votes against them once he gets to Washington. (Check out his voting record and be prepared to vomit.) I could go on and on....Rehberg cares nothing about his oath of office, he just sits and rubber-stamps whatever Bush pushes. Not only that, but Montanans (by a margin of 2:1) voted for term limits and he has exceeded those term limits. IF he cared about the voice of Montanans at all, he wouldn't even be running. Please remove him from this list....he's truly one of the Last people who should be on it.

**the soul would have no rainbow if the eyes had no tears**

Question

Can you/the local RP meetup group get a good candidate to run against him?
Dr. Paul fared quite well during the primary in Montana, thus a "RP quality candidate" should have a good chance of beating him.

Agreed

and REMOVE (I'm in SW MT; you anywhere close?)

I'm in western Montana too

I'm in western Montana too but have extensive contacts throughout the state. Do you have any ideas? At a meeting yesterday, we discussed having both rehberg and baucus recalled for continuously voting against the Constitution and rubber-stamping bush while ignoring their responsibilities in the checks and balances system.....we're all pretty sick of them so blatantly spitting on the Constitution

**the soul would have no rainbow if the eyes had no tears**

I will bring this up at the Emergency

meeting Mon Eve; our Co is still trying to stop the delegate process but believe we will make some progress tomorrow. Only problem, we are greatly out numbered in votes. Conference call and support from Hart and Lake Co. Lady
