    Yet more staffers formerly working for a GOP rival of Ron Paul have endorsed the Texas Congressman’s campaign this week.

    Concord Patch reports that five former New Hampshire staffers of former Governor of New Mexico Gary Johnson announced Friday that they are now endorsing Ron Paul for president.

    “Like many political observers, we see clear and compelling differences between Congressman Ron Paul and the other candidates who will garner significant support in New Hampshire’s first-in-the-nation primary,” the five former staffers said in a statement.

    The five, including Johnson’s former state coordinator and former communications director, left in October citing “frustration with the national campaign.”

    Johnson announced earlier this week that he was quitting the Republican race and would be running as a Libertarian.

    Gary Johnson is a good guy but his campaign never got any traction and he was not allowed to participate in most of the debates. If Ron Paul doesn't get the Republican nomination I will vote for Gary Johnson as a Libertarian in the general election.
