'Veto Johnson' endorses 'Dr. No' for president
ARLINGTON, Va.--(Business Wire)--Today, Gary Johnson - two-term governor of New Mexico - is
formally endorsing Ron Paul for President.

   To announce his endorsement, Governor Johnson issued the following
statement:

   "I am endorsing Ron Paul for the Republican nomination for
President because of his commitment to less government, greater
liberty, and lasting prosperity for America. We are at a point in this
country where we need to reduce our dependency on government and
regain control of our future. To this end, Ron Paul will bring back
troops, end the War in Iraq, and will strengthen the U.S. dollar and
the economy. For these reasons and more, Ron Paul has my support,
respect, and vote."

   Gary Johnson was governor of New Mexico from 1995 to 2003. As
governor, he was a forceful advocate for limited government, gaining
the nickname "Veto Johnson" for his record of vetoing hundreds of
bills.
