Ross Perot IS a billionaire - willing to spend $100 million of

his own money he said in an Interview on the Today Show, in 1992 dollars.

I can't find exact figures but I am aware that the Reform Party spent as much or more than the two major parties did at that time to get that 18.9%.

Again, contrast that to Gary Johnson who certainly didn't have the extrordinary $1 billion that a campaign costs today. In fact he had far, far, less than the $100 million Perot had in 1992 - with just $3 million in 2012.

With adequate money, the successful two term governor of New Mexico could have done very well.
