Press Release of the Day: Gary Johnson Edition

The former governor of New Mexico's Our America Initiative, the PAC prepping him for a 2012 presidential bid, issues a statement to reporters:

Governor Gary Johnson expresses concern about missing balloonists and friends
Richard Abruzzo and Carol Rymer Davis
FormerGovernor of New Mexico Johnson has flown several gas balloon eventswith famed balloonist Abruzzo, and is confident in the skills andabilities of both pilots

The Johnson plan for 2012 is to consolidate libertarian voters, newly active and empowered after the 2008 and 2010 campaigns of Ron and Rand Paul. Some libertarians doubt that Johnson has the gravitas to really capture the imaginations of those voters the way the Pauls have. This stuff does not help. But I hope Abruzzo and Davis are okay.
