Ron Paul will NOT endorse Libertarian Party nominee Gary Johnson for president
Ron Paul who said yesterday he will no longer spend money on his campaign. Paul has not suspended his campaign, and is still technically running, but he realizes that he wouldn’t get enough delegates to become the nominee regardless if he stayed in the race or not. Ron Paul isn’t stupid. He knows that he can bring a lot of enthusiasm to the GOP ticket this fall, if they adopt some of his domestic policies. Ron Paul also wants to give a big speech in Tampa at the convention this summer. That’s why he left the door open to endorsing Mitt Romney, and ruled out endorsing Libertarian Party nominee Gary Johnson for president.
A top campaign official for Ron Paul’s presidential campaign says there’s “no chance” that the Texas Republican congressman will endorse Libertarian Party nominee Gary Johnson for president over presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney.
“No,” campaign chairman Jesse Benton said in a response to a question from The Daily Caller about whether Paul would discuss the possibility of an endorsement with Johnson during a conference call with reporters on Tuesday. “There’s no chance of that.”
Johnson, the former Republican governor of New Mexico, endorsed Paul for president in 2008.
