(The following was a press released issued by the Austin Petersen for campaign.)
This is why we can’t have nice libertarian things.
After an invitation from Fox Business host John Stossel to appear on the network during this year’s Students for Liberty conference, Gary Johnson refused to accept the invitation to debate alongside fellow candidate John McAfee and myself.
Johnson told our campaigns that his refusal was due to a prior engagement. However, when both of our campaigns offered to work together with Johnson in order to make both events possible for all campaigns, he refused to play ball with us and with McAfee.
We had a chance to bring national attention to the ideas of liberty, the Libertarian Party and it’s candidates, and Gary ruined that opportunity for all of us.
Gary, do you even liberty, bro?
