Former Libertarian presidential nominee Bob Barr has endorsed presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney for president. His Facebook posting below:
Eleven days ago Barr, a former Libertarian National Committee member, wrote glowingly about the 2012 LP ticket of Gary Johnson and Jim Gray
Still, the ticket is a strong one, especially in the current political climate in which tea party and other activists are demanding candidates who are genuinely committed to shrinking the size, scope, cost and power of government ó the agenda at the heart of the Libertarian Party since its formation in 1971. ...
If in fact the Libertarian Party candidates somehow work their way into the presidential and vice-presidential debates this year, the election will generate an even higher degree of interest and voter participation than it already promises to deliver. Even in the absence of such an event, however, the Johnson-Gray ticket brings a degree of substance and a new perspective that all voters and media pundits should not only welcome, but embrace.
