In recent weeks, with the full support and legal assistance of the Republican Party, Johnson’s ballot status has been challenged in Michigan, Pennsylvania, the District of Columbia, Iowa and now Ohio.
Ron Nielson, senior advisor to Gov. Johnson, said in a statement released Friday, “The national Republican Party may not want to publicly acknowledge the presence of a true fiscal conservative in this race, but they are certainly taking Gov. Johnson seriously enough to engage in a concerted campaign to get his name off ballots in key states before voters even get a chance to vote.
“In states across the nation, Republican operatives, lawyers, and in some cases, elected officials, are filing frivolous challenges to Governor Johnson’s ballot status. They know that even if their challenges fail, fending them off is a drain on our resources and a distraction from the real issues in this campaign. We don’t have hundreds of millions of dollars to throw around, nor do we have the Republicans’ endless supply of lawyers.
“We have dealt with many challenges in this campaign from the major parties, who clearly don’t want voters to have a viable third option in this election, but this attack on voting rights and democracy is over the top.
I’ve never been so disappointed in the party I once called my own.
So areare you still going to vote Romney seabag? Even after finally becoming aware of how corrupt the romney gop has been this cycle. Romney has a big part in this, it's the only we he can compensate for his moderate/liberal record, get rid of the real conservatives.
The party is going to collapse by 2018, I can see it coming.
The object of a race is to win. Honestly, why would the GOP do anything to hurt their own chances?
I'd expect the same thing from the DNC if the Green Party were running a serious candidate.
So when did you finally open your eyes? Personally I dumped the republican party and joined the independents when that failure Reagan was in office. It was clear even back then the right turned it's back on the people in favor of wall street. When the DNC is over with that's when the screaming and lawsuits will begin.
They can't and they don't. But they will do anything to win.
