Gary Johnson has presidential timber

-A A +A
By Jay Miller

Gary Johnson is looking more like a presidential candidate every day. The former New Mexico governor has now visited 22 states, appeared on a multitude of radio and TV talk shows and was included in the most recent GOP presidential poll.

That poll was conducted by Public Policy Polling and had five choices: Mike Huckabee, Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Sarah Palin and Gary Johnson.

Gov. Johnson had the lowest name recognition but still did better against President Barack Obama than the other four did. GOP leaders are beginning to sit up and take note.

Several months ago, Johnson founded a non-profit called Our American Initiative to promote his ideas. Because of his non-profit’s tax status, Johnson can’t announce for the presidency but he has done just about everything else.

Two Web sites have now been set up by others to encourage Johnson to run for president. The Web sites are attracting considerable interest from Libertarians and Ron Paul Republicans.

How far can Johnson expand that base? Many 2008 supporters of Rep. Ron Paul, a Republican congressman from Texas, think Johnson has what it takes to go farther. Paul did a fantastic job raising money over the Internet but had trouble taking advantage of it.
