Last night, the campaign for Charles Peralo, LNC chair candidate, formally wrote to over a dozen prominent Republicans who has publicly voiced discontent with the direction their party is taking. These Republicans have voiced despair with their fellow party members support of presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald J. Trump.
The campaign formally invited these individuals to attend the Libertarian National Convention in the coming weeks on Mr. Peralo’s dime, so that they might consider our presidential nominee, and maybe find a new political home. We want to grow our party, and introducing these people to our ideals is one of the best ways to do it.
The list of those names include the following:
– Speaker Paul Ryan
– Senator Ted Cruz
– Senator Lindsey Graham
– Senator Rand Paul
– Senator Marco Rubio
– Senator Pat Toomey
– Senator Ben Sasse
– Senator Mike Lee
– Congressman Justin Amash
– Congressman Thomas Massie
– Congressman Mark Sanford
Senators Lee, Sasse and Graham were the first to get back to the Peralo campaign stating that while they were thankful for the invitation, the convention, which is held May 26th-30th would conflict with prior travel arrangements. However, both wished the campaign the best of luck with the event.
Whether or not one or any of these prominent Republicans will accept is yet to be seen. However, Peralo, has shown that he is willing to show initiative with this bold move by extending the olive branch to these prominent and disenfranchised politicians.
You can view the formal invitation to Speaker Paul Ryan, via Peralo’s official campaign Facebook page.
