Jeff Johnson For Governor
Some of the core principles that guide my thinking on government and the issues:
- I believe that government can only exercise authority granted to it in the Constitution.
- I believe that people make better decisions about how to spend the money they earn than government.
- I support school choice and the empowerment of parents to control the education of their children.
- I believe the right to keep and bear arms for personal protection is a fundamental individual right.
- I am pro-life.
- My Christian faith guides every decision I make.

IF you support Johnson for Governor $5.00 will be sent in your name to his campaign.
There's no disclaimer on the arrow wrap swag, so we question whether "Only one candidate for Governor has his own arrow wraps," as the Bowhunters' blog says. If these items are official, it's possibly a violation of Minnesota campaign finance law.
And those donations to Johnson's campaign "in your name" made by a private business--in Utah or anywhere? Possibly not allowed, either. However, since the contributions would slide under the amount that needs to be itemized, who's to know? (Unfortunately, the Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board's website appears to be offline as we compose this, so we'll have to update this post later when it returns).
Does the Johnson campaign even know about this scheme?
We've never seen other outdoors and hunting non-profit groups do this sort of thing.
