Friends, I don’t know where to begin. On Sunday, the Libertarian Party honored me with their nomination for President of the United States, and they nominated Governor William Weld to be the nominee for Vice-President.
In the 72 hours since we were nominated, Governor Weld and I have appeared on MSNBC three times, Fox News and the Fox Business Network four times, CNN three times, Newsmax, CBS, and more other national media outlets than I can keep track of. Donald Trump has called us “fringe” candidates. Sean Hannity spent several minutes on his national radio show talking about how he will never put us on the air.
If the national media isn’t talking TO us, they are talking ABOUT us.
I have YOU to thank for the fact that we are now right in the middle of the national conversation about the direction of this country. Without your support, instead of sorting through more interview requests than we can possibly fulfill, we would still be pleading with the news media to give us a chance.
Without you, our phones wouldn’t be ringing 24/7, our email inboxes wouldn’t be overflowing, and we certainly wouldn’t have Donald Trump attacking us. Thank you.
Now, the real work begins. In the next few days, the pundits and analysts will be asking the question: Can Gary Johnson and Bill Weld raise the money to be truly competitive against the deep pocketed special interests backing Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton? It’s a fair question. Will we have the BILLIONS of dollars they will have? Probably not. But can we raise enough to reach the tens of millions of Americans who are begging for a political home, but who can’t accept the extremes of Trump and Clinton?
That depends on you — and thousands like you. We have to show the nation that there are enough dedicated supporters who will contribute $10, $20, $50, $100, $500 or more to get our message of less government and more freedom to every state and every voter. When the pundits and media see that support, then they will REALLY take note.
We have worked together for a long time to reach this day. I hope I can count on you to help us grab this momentum and show America that the days of two-party control are over. Please go to Gary Johnson 2016 today and contribute what you can. With your help, we can make sure that Donald Trump has to keep attacking me right up to election day.
Thank you for your friendship, your support, and your devotion to liberty. We are on the verge of something historic.
Gov. Gary Johnson
