Republican Perry Johnson kicked off his 2024 presidential campaign at CPAC last weekend.Yes, Perry beat Nikki Haley, coming in third to Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis in the CPAC straw poll. That means that he should be taken at least as seriously as Haley, despite his lack of experience in government.
On the other hand, he does have some experience in politics, but it's not good. He was one of the best-polling candidates running for the Republican nominations for Michigan Governor, but he didn't have enough valid signatures, so he was kicked off the ballot, resulting in Tudor Dixon earning the nomination instead. WDIV addressed this in Michigan millionaire Perry Johnson sets sights on presidency.
Michigan millionaire and failed candidate for governor is setting his sights on the White House. Johnson is running nearly $200,000 worth of ads during the Super Bowl in three Iowa TV markets. In an interview Friday from his office in Troy, Johnson took aim at the Democratic party’s decision to move their first primary to South Carolina.Perry sounds like he's not worried about history repeating. As long as he meets each state's filing deadlines, he should be on their ballots. Let's see if that happens.
Enough politics. Stay tuned for a post about the third anniversary of the pandemic reaching Michigan and much of the rest of the country.
