LAKE JACKSON, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Congressman Ron Paul today endorsed Adam Kokesh, Republican candidate for Congress in New Mexico’s third district.

“Adam Kokesh has been a tremendous supporter of mine. Now, it is time for me to support him.”

Said Dr. Paul, “Adam Kokesh has been a tremendous supporter of mine. Now, it is time for me to support him.

“As a fellow Veteran, Adam understands the many challenges facing our brave men and women in Uniform and the steps we must take to strengthen our national defense.

“Adam Kokesh has dedicated his life to fighting for Liberty. He has set himself apart as one of the bold young leaders our Country sorely needs as we strive to restore our Freedoms and what has made America the greatest nation in history. I am very happy that Adam has decided to run for Congress and wholeheartedly endorse him.”

For more information on Adam Kokesh, please visit www.KokeshforCongress.com.

Congressman Paul’s endorsement comes through his Liberty PAC, a Republican leadership PAC committed to supporting Liberty minded candidates across the country.

Said Liberty PAC director Jesse Benton, “Adam Kokesh is a terrific candidate who is going to ask tough questions like: ‘Why is Ben Lujan voting to run up crushing budget deficits?’, ‘Why has he allowed President Obama to expand the war in Afghanistan?’, and, ‘Will Ben Lujan stand up for the rights of his constituents and work to reform the Patriot Act?’ The constituents of New Mexico’s 3rd district deserve answers to these questions. Adam Kokesh will hold Mr. Lujan accountable.”

Good stuff!

Except, I thought Ron Paul already endorsed Kokesh. Did he endorse him again? Or is this his Liberty PAC endorsement in addition to Ron Paul's personal endorsement?

Yes, this is the endorsement through Liberty PAC, which is a different animal. I'm not sure how it all works, but wide-spread press regardless... :D

Now we need the Gary Johnson endorsement and maybe a Gary Johnson campaign appearance.

He can still appear at a Kokesh event, like Ron Paul is doing for Rand. And he can endorse through the PAC.

I don't think Johnson's organization can endorse Adam. Our America isn't a pac, it's the same type of organization as Campaign for Liberty.

Kevin is correct. Our America is not a PAC and cannot endorse candidates.

However, Gary Johnson CAN and SHOULD. The only way that will happen is if we pressure him to. Anyone who is interested, email info@ouramericainitiative.com and tell them you want Gary Johnson, not Our America, to endorse Adam Kokesh.
