Purple PAC President Gary Crane also said that the organization will help to establish the Libertarian Party on the national stage, saying:
"We're hoping to generate enough support to get up to 15% in the polls..If he's in the debate there's no telling what might happen" -Ed Crane
The ads will air nationwide on cable networks starting next Friday for a week. So far Johnson's campaign has not spent any money on national ads. Johnson is currently polling in the high single digits according to most national poll and needs to cross 15% to make the debates.
