Did Ted Cruz just endorse Gary Johnson?

For Immediate Release Thursday, July 21, 2016

It sounded like it and the Libertarian Party proudly welcomes Cruz supporters.

Last night at the Republican National Convention, Sen. Cruz encouraged Americans to “vote your conscience, vote for candidates up and down the ticket who you trust to defend freedom and to be faithful to the Constitution.”

The Libertarian Party agrees.

Nicholas Sarwark, Chair of the Libertarian National Committee, says, “Come November, we encourage those who seek to follow their conscience, who love freedom and the Constitution, as Sen. Cruz describes, to vote Libertarian. We have candidates running for positions ranging from President to City Council.”

“I don’t agree with Senator Cruz on every issue, but this election is a job interview for the most important job in the country. His call to not stay home in November, to vote your conscience, to vote for the candidate who will defend the Constitution, is one that people should heed. If Americans look past names and party labels, the most honest, trustworthy, and qualified candidate is very clearly Gary Johnson. Maybe that’s why the delegates at his convention savagely booed his call to ‘vote your conscience.'”

The Libertarian Party is the only political party in America devoted to protecting all rights, of all human beings, all the time.
