Libertarian Candidate Hopes To Pick Up NW Paul Supporters
The four remaining candidates for the GOP presidential nomination get most of the political attention. But one Libertarian Party hopeful made a swing through the Northwest Friday.
Former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson says he's hoping to pick up supporters from Republican Congressman Ron Paul.
"Potentially, I do see this as changing the world a little bit," Johnson says. "Where does that Ron Paul support go when he ends up not winning the nomination, which I don't think he's going to."
Johnson spoke at a Salem news conference. He left the Republican Party late last year to seek the Libertarian nomination. The Libertarian Party will choose its presidential nominee at a convention in May near Las Vegas.
