JOHNSON CAMPAIGN CHARGES REPUBLICANS
ARE ENGAGING IN “SERIAL CHALLENGES”
TO KEEP LIBERTARIAN PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE
OFF BALLOTS IN KEY STATES

August 31, 2012, Santa Fe, NM — With word Friday that a challenge has been lodged in Ohio to try to remove Libertarian presidential candidate and former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson’s name from the November ballot in Ohio, a senior advisor to Johnson’s campaign is charging that the national Republican Party is mounting a concerted effort to “deny citizens the right to vote for the candidate of their choice.”

In recent weeks, with the full support and legal assistance of the Republican Party, Johnson’s ballot status has been challenged in Michigan, Pennsylvania, the District of Columbia, Iowa and now Ohio.

Ron Nielson, senior advisor to Gov. Johnson, said in a statement released Friday, “The national Republican Party may not want to publicly acknowledge the presence of a true fiscal conservative in this race, but they are certainly taking Gov. Johnson seriously enough to engage in a concerted campaign to get his name off ballots in key states before voters even get a chance to vote.

“In states across the nation, Republican operatives, lawyers, and in some cases, elected officials, are filing frivolous challenges to Governor Johnson’s ballot status. They know that even if their challenges fail, fending them off is a drain on our resources and a distraction from the real issues in this campaign. We don’t have hundreds of millions of dollars to throw around, nor do we have the Republicans’ endless supply of lawyers.

“We have dealt with many challenges in this campaign from the major parties, who clearly don’t want voters to have a viable third option in this election, but this attack on voting rights and democracy is over the top.

“Governor Johnson has made it clear that we will fight every one of these challenges and do everything in our power to be on the ballot in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. The prospect of a successful two-term governor who is a proven fiscal conservative and champion of social tolerance may be a thorn in the sides of the two so-called major parties, but Governor Johnson will not be deterred in his effort to give voters a real choice in November.”

###

About presidential candidate Gary Johnson: Gary Johnson, two-term governor of New Mexico from 1995-2003, has been a consistent advocate for limited, efficient government and personal liberty. Johnson switched from the Republican Party to the Libertarian Party on Dec. 28, 2011. As the Libertarian Party nominee, Johnson will appear on all 50 states’ ballots. An outspoken pro-Constitution Libertarian, Johnson would end the war in Afghanistan now. He opposes the failed multi-billion dollar war on drugs and demands greater transparency at the Federal Reserve. As president, Johnson would cut federal spending by 43 percent, slash debt and make government live within its means while reducing taxes and regulation to foster real job creation and economic opportunity like he did in eight years as governor. The National Review said he was “#1” in job creation as governor. An avid skier and bicyclist, he has reached the highest peaks on four of the seven continents, including Mount Everest.

Why are Ron Paul fans so excited about Gov. Gary Johnson?

“Watch the Gov. Gary Johnson speech that has Ron Paul fans raving over the Johnson Presidential campaign.”

Gov. Johnson Addresses P.A.U.L. Fest in Tampa

Friends,

This week, the Liberty Movement is at a critical juncture.

The Republican Establishment gathered in Tampa for its convention is doing two things: Obviously, they are coronating their chosen nominee for President, Mitt Romney – who promises to deliver to America a continuation of big spending, big government, and war.

But while the coronation of Mitt Romney takes place on the stage, the Republican are trying to shut down Liberty at their convention and in their party.

As reported in the New York Times, “Delegates from Nevada tried to nominate Mr. Paul from the floor, submitting petitions from their own state as well as Minnesota, Maine, Iowa, Oregon, Alaska and the Virgin Islands. That should have done the trick: Rules require signatures from just five states. But the party changed the rules on the spot. Henceforth, delegates must gather petitions from eight states.”

At the invitation of supporters of Congressman Ron Paul, Governor Johnson traveled to Tampa in the days before the Republican convention to address the P.A.U.L. Fest. Anyone who was in the room – and there were about 2,000 Liberty advocates in attendance – can assure you that the Liberty Movement is not to be denied!

They can change the rules to keep Dr. Paul from being nominated. They can send their Washington, DC, lawyers to Iowa and file challenges in Pennsylvania and Oklahoma to try to keep Gov. Johnson off the November ballot. But they CANNOT silence the Liberty message that Governor Johnson and Congressman Paul are taking to every corner of America. It is a message that Governor Johnson will keep delivering at every opportunity – with your help today.

When the media learned that Governor Johnson was in Tampa over the weekend, he didn’t have enough hours in the day to do all the interviews they requested. Why the attention? They had heard about Gov. Johnson’s reception at the P.A.U.L. Fest – and they were talking to Republican delegates who are saying Congressman Paul’s treatment at the convention is causing them to take a close look at Governor Gary Johnson.

We MUST seize the momentum this week’s events have created. We have a few short weeks to reach millions of Americans via email, advertising, phone calls and social media. When those voters face the reality that the Republicans and Democrats are offering them Mitt Romney and Barack Obama, they will be looking for the choice Gov. Johnson provides – and they need to hear from us. Your contribution today atwww.garyjohnson2012.com will make that possible.

Please go to www.garyjohnson2012.com and ensure that the message of Liberty continues to spread. Never before has the opportunity been so great. Your contribution is the key to grabbing that opportunity.

Thank you for your friendship to Gov. Johnson, and your support. It is happening!

Ron Nielson
Senior Advisor
Gov. Gary Johnson

P.S. Don’t forget. Right now, we are fighting legal battles all across the nation to fulfill Gov. Johnson’s pledge to be on the ballot in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Your contribution will help us win!

Republicans Trying to Keep Gary Johnson Off the Ballot!

REPUBLICANS TRY TO KEEP LIBERTARIAN GARY JOHNSON OFF THE IOWA BALLOT
Romney Supporters File Challenge Urging Secretary of State to Exclude Libertarian Nominees from the Ballot in November

Jay Kramer, a Mitt Romney campaign operative from Washington D.C., filed a challenge on Friday to keep Libertarian candidate for President, Gary Johnson, from appearing on the ballot in November. The Romney campaign hired the largest law firm in Iowa, the Des Moines based, Nyemaster Goode PC, for the challenge, which will be heard by Iowa Secretary of State Matt Shultz on Monday at 3 pm.

“This is clearly a set up,” said the Johnson campaign’s attorney, Alicia Dearn. “Romney can’t beat Johnson on the debate stage, so he has resorted to cronyism. The Libertarian Party had two thousand petition signatures and should have been on the ballot without challenge, as they have always done in the past. But Republican Shultz [Iowa Secretary of State] – in violation of longstanding Iowa law – rejected the petition and required the Johnson campaign to caucus at the state fair. There, the Romney campaign surveilled the Johnson campaign’s activities for the sole purpose of bringing this eleventh-hour challenge.” Dearn said.

The Romney campaign’s challenge was filed Friday afternoon and set for a hearing on Monday afternoon. The 106-page challenge includes pictures of Johnson supporters asking fair-goers to support having Gov. Johnson and the Libertarian Party offered as a choice on the ballot.

The challenge claims that the state fair signatures should be thrown out because the signers are not Libertarians. “The challenge is legally frivolous,” asserts Dearn. “You don’t have to be a registered Libertarian to want a third choice on the ballot. Iowans deserve to choose for themselves who to vote for, which is why Gov. Johnson should be on the ballot and allowed to debate Romney and President Obama. Democracy suffers when voices are silenced.”

Unlike other states, Iowa has a perfect history of allowing third-party candidates onto the ballot and is known for its independent-minded voter. “Iowa is one of the very few states that has never kept any general election presidential candidate off its ballot,” said ballot access historian Richard Winger. “It is a policy that saves money and work for elections officials, because Iowa doesn’t need to tally write-in votes for presidential candidates when all such significant candidates are on the ballot.”

Republicans fear that Johnson, a former Republican two-term Governor from New Mexico, will siphon votes from Romney and create a victory for Obama. It is a claim that Governor Johnson does not shy away from. In a YouTube video titled, A Vote for Freedom is Never Wasted, Johnson says, “They deserve to lose your vote.” Iowa is expected to be a battleground state this election.

According to Dearn, the Romney campaign is using similar tactics to keep Governor Johnson off the ballot in Michigan and Pennsylvania, and is pressuring the Commission on Presidential Debates to exclude Governor Johnson from the televised national debates. The Romney campaign has also been accused of fraud and bullying of Ron Paul delegates in several lawsuits throughout the country and protests by Ron Paul supporters are expected at the Republican Party convention in Tampa later this week. “Paul supporters were treated really badly in Iowa by the Romney campaign,” Dearn said.

As the Libertarian candidate for President, Johnson promises to submit a balanced budget to Congress in 2013 and to reduce wasteful spending, advocates for reducing government intrusion into the everyday lives and liberties of Americans, supports the Constitution, and advocates for an end to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Johnson will be on the ballot in all 50 states and has been qualified by the FEC for Federal matching funds. His running mate is retired California Superior Court Judge and former Naval officer, Jim Gray.

You Need to Know

Friends,

Michigan, Pennsylvania, Oklahoma …the list goes on. While Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are taking this campaign to new lows with personal attacks on each other and any other tactics they can find to avoid having to talk about real issues, there is another attack going on – and you need to know about it.

In state capitals across the country, the so-called “major” Democrat and Republican parties are attacking Gary Johnson. No, they aren’t doing it with press releases or the kinds of ads they are using to attack each other. Instead, they are attacking Gov. Johnson with lawyers and scare tactics. Their attacks: Legal challenges to keep Gov. Johnson and Judge Jim Gray off the ballot.

Gov. Johnson needs your help to fight back. Go to www.garyjohnson2012.com and make the contribution that will help us win these battles.

In Michigan, the Republican Secretary of State and Attorney General have dragged up an arcane law to rule that Gov. Johnson cannot be on the ballot, forcing us to file a lawsuit. In Oklahoma, we are fighting a similar battle. And now, despite the fact that our volunteers submitted more than twice the number of signatures on petitions – almost 50,000 – required to insure Gov. Johnson’s place on the ballot in Pennsylvania, the Establishment and their attorneys have challenged our petitions.

As I send this email, dedicated volunteers in Pennsylvania are spending days in a room arguing over individual signatures against a group of lawyers paid by the Republican Party. They need your help. You can go to www.garyjohnson2012.com right now and make a contribution that will help give them the support they need to do battle with the Republican lawyers.

Everywhere they can, the status quo politicians and their lawyers are trying to keep Gov. Johnson off the ballot – and limit voters’ choices to the Democrat Obama and the Republican Romney. And even when their challenges have no merit, they know that forcing us to fight these battles costs us time and money that we would otherwise use to spread the message of liberty, economic freedom and non-intervention.

Just like the Republican establishment who tried to silence Congressman Ron Paul, the powers-that-be are determined to keep the American people from hearing, seeing or even having a chance to vote for Gov. Gary Johnson. They’re afraid. They know millions of Americans, if given a chance, will reject the big government candidates and join the liberty movement.

And if they can keep our time and money tied up fighting bureaucratic battles and antiquated laws, they figure they can keep us from getting our message out.

Let me be clear. We will not be bullied. We will not let them keep us off the ballot. And we will not let them keep our message from being spread.

But we need your help. It is true that these fights in state capitals are costing a great deal of money. That makes it absolutely critical that our current Money Bomb reach the goals we have set. If we meet our goals, we will have the money we need to put our ads on the air – AND pay the costs of making certain Gov. Johnson and Judge Gray are on the ballots in all 50 states. We must do both.

Gov. Johnson has made it clear that our #1 priority is to give voters in every state the opportunity to vote for the only candidate who really stands for liberty, for individual freedom, and for government that is truly smaller. If we have to spend precious dollars to do that, we will – and we are.

Please go to www.garyjohnson2012.com today and make the contribution that will fulfill Gov. Johnson’s pledge to the voters in all 50 states. Over the past few weeks, more than 3,000 contributors have pushed our Money Bomb to almost $300,000. But we need to push it to $1 Million. That may sound like a lot, but with even small contributions of $5, $10, $50 or $100 from supporters such as you, we will meet that goal. And of course, larger contributions are fantastic.

Right now, all over the country, hard-working volunteers are doing battle with the two “major” parties and the election officials they have put in place to keep us off the ballot. Please join the fight today by going to www.garyjohnson2012.com and making a contribution that will not only help us fight back, but put our message on the air and in front of the voters.

Thank you – with your help, we will prevail. We know it.

Ron Nielson
Senior Advisor
Gov. Gary Johnson

P.S. Despite the attacks and behind-the-scenes games, we are winning the ballot fight. Already, Gov. Johnson is officially on the ballot in 36 states, and we WILL get to 50 states and the District of Columbia!

On Taxes, Paul Ryan is No Gary Johnson

August 13, 2012
Willamette Week
By Mark Zusman

Paul Ryan’s specialty is taxes—he is the chair of the House Budget Committee. While he is to the right of Romney on many issues, taxes are not an extreme example. He wants to reduce the top income rate and eliminate taxes on capital gains, interest and dividends, but if you want radical, you have to look to Gary Johnson, the libertarian candidate for President, who wants to abolish the federal income tax, a device that was put in place by the Revenue Act of 1913.

In what has become one of the most heated election cycles in recent memory, some voters are told that a vote for a third party candidate is a “wasted vote,” or even “a vote for the other guy.” This line of thought is self-deceiving: For democracy to truly function and for all ideas to be considered, third party candidates like Gary Johnson must exist.

Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson almost certainly can’t win the presidential election this year. But his supporters claim he could determine who does. Johnson, the former New Mexico governor who briefly and unsuccessfully competed for the Republican presidential nomination before joining the Libertarians, is polling barely above 5 percent nationwide. Yet his numbers in key battleground states suggest he could make a difference in what is shaping up to be a tight contest between President Obama and Mitt Romney.

Former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson probably won’t win the presidential election this year — but that’s not to say he won’t have an effect on its final outcome.

Johnson, who briefly participated in the Republican presidential primaries before switching over to the Libertarians, is polling at about 5 percent nationwide, according to Fox News. However, despite a poor showing in nationwide polls, he does have some pull in key battleground states, including New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona, and Nevada.

Presidential Candidate Gary Johnson Thinks Labeling Paul Ryan a ‘Libertarian’ Is Laughable

August 19, 2012
Gather Politics
By Elan Kesilman

Presidential candidate for the Libertarian Party Gary Johnson has been traveling across Texas this past week in an effort to make his policies known to voters. While Johnson has been on the campaign trail, some members of the media have been trying to label Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan a libertarian, but Johnson begs to differ.

Now that Ryan is in the spotlight, a little controversy over his reading material has begun. It seems Ryan admitted enjoying and being influenced by the novels of Ayn Rand, a writer whose political philosophy greatly shaped the Libertarian party. Of course, now that he’s running on the Republican ticket with Mitt Romney, Ryan is downplaying any affection he once had for the libertarian viewpoint.

Libertarian Presidential Nominee Gary Johnson to Race in Grueling Leadville 100 Saturday

GOV. GARY JOHNSON WILL COMPETE IN
LEADVILLE 100 ON SATURDAY FOR NINTH TIME

August 9, 2012, Leadville, Colo. — Libertarian Party presidential nominee Gary Johnson will take a brief break from the campaign trail on Saturday, August 11, to tackle another grueling race: the Leadville 100 mountain-bike race in Colorado.

An accomplished cyclist and outdoorsman, Gov. Johnson will compete in the high-altitude race for the ninth time since 2002. Featuring a rugged 100-mile, out-and-back route in the midst of the Colorado Rockies, the race draws riders from around the world who are willing to climb to 12,424 feet from the 10,152-feet starting line.

Gov. Johnson’s personal-best time in the Leadville 100 is under nine hours. He’s missed the race just twice since 2002 — once because he was recovering from frostbite, and once because he didn’t win a spot in the lottery-derived field.

Gov. Johnson’s fiancee, Kate Prusack, will ride the Leadville 100 this year too.

Next week, the former two-term Governor of New Mexico will resume campaigning when he heads out on a Texas swing that will take him to Dallas, Austin, San Antonio and Houston.

About presidential candidate Gary Johnson: Gary Johnson, two-term governor of New Mexico from 1995-2003, has been a consistent advocate for limited, efficient government and personal liberty. Johnson switched from the Republican Party to the Libertarian Party on Dec. 28, 2011. As the Libertarian Party nominee, Johnson will appear on all 50 states’ ballots. An outspoken pro-Constitution Libertarian, Johnson would end the war in Afghanistan now. He opposes the failed multi-billion dollar war on drugs and demands greater transparency at the Federal Reserve. As president, Johnson would cut federal spending by 43 percent, slash debt and make government live within its means while reducing taxes and regulation to foster real job creation and economic opportunity like he did in eight years as governor. The National Review said he was “#1” in job creation as governor. An avid skier and bicyclist, he has reached the highest peaks on four of the seven continents, including Mount Everest.
