Open Letter to Governor Mike Pence

Dear Governor Pence,

I know this is a painful time for you.

I know you pride yourself on your family values and faith. The recent revelation of your running mate's bragging about sexual assault flies in the face of everything you, and every decent American, believes in.

It is now abundantly clear that Donald Trump does not have the character appropriate to be the next President of the United States.

You and I may not agree on some other things but I know we can agree that Hillary Clinton also does not have the character appropriate to be the next President of the United States.

At this point, there is no path forward for Donald Trump to win this race. And, as I'm sure you are aware, it is too late to reprint ballots with any other name for the Republican ticket. 

As Chairman of the Libertarian Party, I'm asking you to help us block Hillary Clinton from becoming President.

I am asking you to put your country ahead of your party by resigning from the Republican ticket and publicly endorsing Governor Gary Johnson for President.

Governor Gary Johnson is an experienced leader and a man of character. If elected, he will govern fairly and honestly. As you know, he has a track record of working across party lines and would continue this inclusiveness if elected President.

Governor Johnson's name will be on every ballot in America. He is our best shot at getting a President that is qualified for the office, both in character and experience.

By endorsing Governor Johnson, you would show the country your commitment to character above party. By helping elect a man of integrity to the highest office in the land, you could very truly help save your country. 

The stakes could not be higher. Please join me today in ensuring that Hillary Clinton does not become President.

Nicholas Sarwark
Chairman, Libertarian National Committee
