NEW YORK – As Election Day nears, the head of the Libertarian Action Super PAC, Wes Benedict, remains optimistic that an extremely wealthy benefactor will enrich Libertarian Party presidential candidate Gary Johnson’s coffers.
“We’re putting these programs out there so donors can quickly see where their money goes if they contribute,” Benedict said during a phone interview. “That’s one of our strategies to show what we’re doing, have a billionaire come out of the woodwork and fund it. These are scalable things. If you robocall a half-million people it’s easy to robocall twenty million people.”
