Rumors of a potential Jeb Bush endorsement for Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson are flying on the Twittersphere. The only problem is nobody really seems sure where the reports are coming from. Take it with a grain of salt, but rumors suggest Bush and former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney may both be planning endorsements for the Libertarian candidate.

Gary Johnson did hint just two days ago that a Bush endorsement may be forthcoming. And we know Jeb has said that he will not be voting for Trump.
While at this point these appear to be only rumors, they have sparked heated debate in libertarian circles about whether such endorsements should be welcomed. While some point to the attention these names can draw to the ticket, others think such ambassadors would be dilute the libertarian message.
No matter your thoughts, Johnson could use a few more points in the polls. If he manages to average 15% he will be given a chance to debate Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.
Let us know what you think about a possible Jeb Bush endorsement on Facebook.
