Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson said that it is very possible he will get the endorsement of former Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush about a possible endorsement.
“I can’t say that we haven’t had conversations, but no push on the conversations,” Johnson, who is in Cleveland observing the Republican National Convention, said on CNN. When asked who initiated the talks, he said “not me,” but he declined to elaborate, adding, “I want to protect the innocent here.”
“You don’t go from being Republican-elected, you don’t go from being the Republican nominee to say, ‘Hey, I’m supporting Gary Johnson,’” Johnson said. “You go to say, ‘Hey, I’m going to look at his campaign.’” He expressed hope that potential Republican supporters see “a lot of common ground” in the pair’s platforms, specifically in their support of small government.
Citing the 13 percent of respondents in a new CNN poll who expressed support for Johnson, he said, “We would not be doing this if there weren’t the opportunity to actually win,” calling the convention so far a “mixed opportunity” and outlining his goal “to stake out a six-lane highway in between Clinton and Trump.”
“I think what I’m saying is representative of most Americans,” Johnson said. “I think most Americans are libertarians, it’s just that they don’t know it.”
This just HAS to burn Donald Trump.
