Endorsements seem to have been flying left and right in the Libertarian Party recently. Most of the verified endorsements have been hitting one candidate in particular though. It comes as no surprise that the party’s 2012 nominee Gary Johnson has been getting far and away the most endorsements from state party chairs and activists. Here’s the full list of all of the leading libertarians who have endorsed Gary Johnson.

May 25, 2016, Orlando, FL — The Gary Johnson 2016 campaign released a list of Libertarian Party leaders and libertarian movement luminaries who have endorsed former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson for the Libertarian Party’s 2016 presidential nomination.
As his campaign released the list of endorsers, Governor Johnson remarked, “As we Libertarians head to Orlando for the nominating convention, I am gratified to have the support of so many Libertarian leaders and advocates for freedom. Many of those who are supporting my nomination have worked long and hard to put us in the historic position we are today, and I am humbled to have their confidence.”
