On Saturday, in an interview with Deseret News, Libertarian Presidential nominee Gary Johnson asserted that Mitt Romney would play a part in his eventual Presidency. Said Johnson, “If Mitt Romney wants to be a part of the administration, that would be a guarantee.”
He continued on to state that he has no specific position in mind for the 2012 Republican nominee. Said Johnson, “I think [the position] would be for Mitt Romney to decide … and I say that with reverence to his skills as a business person and having run the Olympics.”
Johnson’s running mate, William Weld suggested that perhaps Romney would serve as a good Secretary of State or Secretary of Defense. Both Johnson and Weld also suggested that former Utah Governor Mike Leavitt could possibly be part of the administration, perhaps as Secretary of State.
