GOV. GARY JOHNSON TO LAUNCH “LIVE FREE” CAMPUS TOUR APRIL 1
March 7, 2013, Santa Fe, NM -- Governor Gary Johnson, Honorary Chairman of the Our America Initiative and 2012 candidate for President, will kick off a “Live Free” tour of college campuses across the country on April 1, 2013, with a visit to Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. Other stops on the month-long tour will take the former New Mexico Governor to campuses in Michigan, Illinois, Missouri, New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, Utah and Washington, DC.
Announcing the Live Free Tour schedule, Johnson said, “As I have traveled across the nation over the past couple of years, it is clear that the ideas of small government, fiscal responsibility and greater respect for individual liberty resonate with young people. They understand that a $16 trillion debt, the erosion of civil liberty at the hands of the government, and the consequences of unnecessary intervention abroad are all going to end up on their shoulders.
“The purpose of the Our America Initiative and our Live Free Tour is to encourage a broader and, frankly, louder, public dialogue about these issues that are critical to the nation’s future. I’m excited to be visiting these campuses and to have an opportunity to not only speak, but to listen to the very real concerns of our young people.”
Governor Johnson will be joined at various stops on the tour by other leaders from across the political and policy spectrum. Among them will be former California Superior Court Judge Jim Gray, a nationally-known advocate for drug policy reform and greater civil liberties. Other speakers for each event will be announced later.
