Presidential Candidate Campaigning for Poker Player Vote | PokerNews

Presidential Candidate Openly Campaigning for Poker Player Vote | PokerNews:

"For the first time, a presidential candidate is openly campaigning for the poker-player vote. Former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson has set up a Web page targeting poker players.... The Republican candidate for 2012 asks players to 'participate in your freedom' by pledging $25, $50 or $100 to his campaign by clicking on images that look like poker chips.

"'He cares about this issue,' said Poker Players Alliance executive director John Pappas, who had lunch with Johnson in Washington, D.C., last month. 'He also realizes there is a serious voting block of people out there and believes that their ideologies, not just on poker but [on] other issues, probably align with his.'

Johnson is expected to be in Las Vegas this week ... to attend the TwoPlusTwo.com World Series of Poker party on Thursday night at the Wynn Poker Room and then be at the PPA booth at the Rio on Friday from 1 to 3 p.m."
