UPDATED 9/6 Who's Afraid Of Gary Johnson? Mittens And The GOP Part I (Michigan)

EDITOR'S NOTE 9/6 - Today was the first setback for the Johnson campaign as a US District Court in Michigan dismissed the Libertarian Party's lawsuit, denying Governor Johnson a place on the Wolverine State's ballot.

Instead, former officer of the national Libertarian Party and delegate to the national Libertarian Party convention, Gary E. Johnson of Texas, may be on in his place.

An explanation of the decision is due on 9/7.

We'll keep you updated on that and whether the LP decides to appeal.

Gary Johnson will be on the Michigan ballot in November; it just may not be that Gary Johnson.

You see, the former New Mexico Governor may have gotten his paperwork to withdraw from the MI GOP Primary in THREE MINUTES too late (remember NH?) and because of Michigan's "sore-loser law", Johnson may not be eligible to represent the Libertarian Party in that state.

This is all politics of course. The Michigan GOP is afraid that Mittens will lose votes to the Libertarian candidate even though polls show Johnson pull equally from both parties. After all, Mitt just barely eked out a victory in a state where his farther was once Governor.

So expect to see a suit filed by the Libertarian Party of Michigan and regardless of the outcome, expect to see Gary Johnson's name on the ballot. Whoever he may be.
