Former Gov Johnson NH Campaign Staffers Endorse Ron Paul

FORMER MEMBERS OF GARY JOHNSON’S NEW HAMPSHIRE CAMPAIGN STAFF ENDORSE RON PAUL, CITE “CLEAR AND COMPELLING DIFFERENCES” BETWEEN PAUL AND OTHER CANDIDATES


Dec. 30, 2012, Manchester, NH - All five former members of Gary Johnson’s New Hampshire campaign staff formally endorsed Ron Paul for president today, releasing the following statement:

Like many political observers, we see clear and compelling differences between Congressman Ron Paul and the other candidates who will garner significant support in New Hampshire’s first-in-the-nation primary.


Some, such as Union-Leader publisher Joe McQuaid, feel that these differences, particularly in the arena of foreign policy, render Paul “truly dangerous” as a potential president (“Ron Paul is truly dangerous,” Dec. 29).


On the contrary, we believe there is much greater danger in perpetuating the status quo than in electing a president who will follow the Constitution and seek Congressional authorization before sending Americans to war.


We are pleased by the fact that so many American servicemen and women appear to agree with our view rather than McQuaid’s. This is evidenced by the fact that between January 1 and Sept. 30, 2011, Paul’s campaign received an amazing $113,739 in donations from active military.


By contrast, Mitt Romney received only $11,555 from active military during the same period, and Newt Gingrich, who has been endorsed by McQuaid and the Union-Leader, netted a paltry $1,275.


For this reason and many others, we proudly endorse Ron Paul for president.
