Politico: Gary Johnson on ballot in 47 states
You did this!
The Republicans and Mitt Romney are trying to stop us, but they are failing. From Iowa to Virginia, they have sent their money and their lawyers to state capitals across the nation to keep Gov. Johnson off the November ballot. But as Politico is reporting this morning, his name is already on the ballot in 47 states and the District of Columbia, and we are determined to fight off the attacks that are still going on in the three remaining states: Michigan, Oklahoma and Pennsylvania.
We are winning these battles because of you – and hundreds like you who have stepped up and provided the financial support we must have to pay the costs of these ballot challenges. I emailed you last week to let you know we needed to raise $100,000 quickly to ensure Gov. Johnson’s place on the ballot in all 50 states, and you responded. In those few short days, great supporters of our campaign for Liberty contributed more than $50,000. That support has been key in the past few days, but we are not finished.
Right now, we are in court in the remaining three states, and our costs are adding up. Your contribution at www.garyjohnson2012.com today will allow us to keep up the fight and finish the job of giving voters in each and every state the opportunity to choose Liberty, non-intervention, and smaller government – rather than the business-as-usual Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are offering.
Your contribution is essential for another reason: It is clear that the Establishment politicians are trying to drain our resources by forcing our campaign to spend time and precious money fighting these ballot challenges. They hope that, whether they win these challenges or not, the money we spend on them will keep us from purchasing the advertising we need to get Gov. Johnson’s message out.
Thanks to folks like you, that tactic is failing also – so far. This week we have placed our first radio buy, and in the next day or so you will begin to hear our ad in key states and on targeted shows across the nation.
But, I wouldn’t be honest if I didn’t tell you that it is simple math that the money we must spend to fight off ballot challenges is money we could otherwise use to buy more advertising and pay the other costs of running a national campaign. That is where you come in. Gov. Johnson must have your continued financial support to keep the opposition’s tactics from working. Please go to www.garyjohnson2012.com and make sure Gov. Johnson is on the ballot in every state – AND on the air.
You may have seen some of the national media attention our campaign is receiving this week. CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, U.S. News & World Report, and many others are seeing – and reporting – the polls that prove our message is resonating with key voters.
As Gov. Johnson says, that is momentum – and we have to seize it.
Your friendship and support have brought us to the edge of history. Fewer than 60 days remain until election day. Go to www.garyjohnson2012.com and help ensure that we have the resources to make the history that is now within our grasp.
Thank you, as always.
Gov. Gary Johnson
P.S. Tune in Thursday night to “Stossel” on Fox Business Channel. Gov. Johnson will be appearing on the show, and it should be very interesting.
