Sarvis Picks Up Endorsement from New Mexico Libertarian
– August 20, 2013 3:19 pm
Former New Mexico Governor and 2012 Libertarian Party presidential nominee Gary Johnson endorsed Libertarian Robert Sarvis for governor of Virginia today.
In endorsing Sarvis, Governor Johnson remarked, “Robert Sarvis is the only candidate in this year’s most-watched and most negative election who offers a relentlessly positive libertarian vision for Virginia that’s both ‘Open-minded and Open for Business.’ Be Libertarian with me, Virginia, in 2013 and vote for Robert Sarvis for Governor.” Accepting Gov. Johnson’s endorsement, Sarvis stated: “I am honored to receive the endorsement of Gary Johnson. Gov. Johnson campaigned for the White House with a ‘fiscally responsible, socially accepting’ message that complements the Sarvis vision for a Virginia that’s ‘Open-minded and Open for Business.’
“And Gov. Johnson’s presidential campaign helped me make the transition away from the GOP and welcome me into the Libertarian Party, my natural political home.”
