Dear Fellow Libertarian,
This is a great time to be a Libertarian. Whether you’ve been registered Libertarian for 30 years or only 30 days, you know that this year, instead of getting the usual cold shoulder from the media, we are being noticed and called out as an alternative to the widely unpopular Republican and Democratic candidates.
The Libertarian candidate for President in 2016 is former Gov. GARY JOHNSON of New Mexico. His running mate is former Gov. BILL WELD of Massachusetts. This is one of the most experienced national tickets in U. S. history, and the media is taking notice. And the American people are taking notice. The amount of news coverage of the 2016 Libertarian ticket is unprecedented
Gary Johnson’s goal is to get into the presidential debates. He has to be in the polls to be considered, and a lot of polling agencies have started including him. He is at 10% to 12% in various polls, and just needs to be at 15% to be in the debates. If Gary Johnson can be on stage with Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, it will be a game changer. The Libertarian alternative will finally be presented to a national TV audience!
You can see and hear Gary Johnson on Wednesday, June 22. He and Bill Weld will be on CNN for a prime-time town hall hosted by CNN anchor Chris Cuomo. The town hall will be at 9 p.m. ET (which is 6 p.m. Pacific time) from the Time Warner Center in New York City and will air on CNN, CNN International and CNN en Espanol, while also being live-streamed via CNNgo.
Cuomo and voters will ask questions of Johnson and Weld at the town hall, similar to those posed to the Democratic and Republican candidates during the primaries. This will be the 11th town hall hosted by CNN during this presidential election cycle – but the only one, perhaps, which truly represents YOUR views. Tune in…ask questions…make CNN realize that they need to include the Libertarians in all future town halls.

Finally, we need you to help us support Gary Johnson and to build the Libertarian Party here in California at the same time. If ever a state needed the Libertarian alternative, it’s the great state of California.
