Gary Johnson to campaign in Clearwater -- as a Libertarian?

December

gary-johnson.jpgFormer New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson, a little-noticed Republican presidential candidate, is scheduled to be in Clearwater next Monday - to address Libertarians.

“We’re definitely attempting to recruit Gary,” said Adrian Wyllie, Chairman of the Libertarian Party of Florida, who wants Johnson to drop out of the GOP primary.  “We're hoping he decides to join the LP and compete for the nomination...“Gov. Johnson’s record has always been libertarian,” said Wyllie.  “I guess you could call him a RINO, because unlike most of the Republican establishment, he actually practices Constitutional government after campaign season is over.”

Johnson is scheduled to speak at 6pm on Monday, Dec. 12, at the conference center at the Datex Building at 10320 49th St. N.  A meet-and-greet reception will follow at 7pm at the Quaker Steak and Lube restaurant next door.   Both events are free and open to the public.   The Save America Foundation and the 1787 Network are also helping to organize the event.
