South Carolina’s most-circulated newspaper, The Post and Courier of Charleston, has endorsed Gov. Gary Johnson for President.
In an editorial published in this Sunday’s edition, The Post and Courier made its case for Gov. Johnson by stating that “it’s grimly obvious that a record number of voters are thoroughly dismayed by what they justifiably see as their lack of a positive White House choice in either the Democratic or the Republican nominee.”
“If you’re among that vast group,” the editorial’s title suggested “A liberating presidential-vote solution” to ”register your displeasure loudly and clearly by voting for neither Hillary Clinton nor Donald Trump on Tuesday. Instead, vote for Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson.”
Citing the fiscally conservative records of both Gov. Johnson in New Mexico, and his running mate, Gov. Bill Weld in Massachusetts, The Post and Courier noted that “the Johnson-Weld ticket stresses the urgent need to reform unsustainable federal entitlement spending. Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Trump duck that dire challenge of our times.”
Concluding its endorsement The Post and Courier urged readers to “vote to let the major parties know they blew it this year with their choices of White House nominees. Vote for Gary Johnson for president.”
Also on Sunday, November 6, The Danville Register & Bee also endorsed Johnson.
“Gov. Gary Johnson gives us a chance to tell the major parties that 2016 marks the end of business as usual in Washington and that the era of ever-expanding government is coming to an end.
“If you believe that it’s time for the American people to stop playing the game the two parties want us to play, then voting for a Libertarian this year makes sense. With Gov. Gary Johnson, we have a chance to slay the beast — and elect the best candidate on the ballot.”
