ARLINGTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 21, 2008--Today, Gary Johnson, two-term governor of New Mexico, is formally endorsing Ron Paul for President. To announce his endorsement, Governor Johnson issued the following statement: "I am endorsing Ron Paul for the Republican nomination for President because of his commitment to less government, greater liberty, and lasting prosperity for America. We are at a point in this country where we need to reduce our dependency on government and regain control of our future. "To this end, Ron Paul will bring back troops, end the War in Iraq, and will strengthen the U.S. dollar and the economy. For these reasons and more, Ron Paul has my support, respect, and vote."
