"A lot of people have been telling me lately that I should run for President of the United States," Johnson said. "And I gotta tell you, it's very flattering but tonight, I wanna put this for rest and just say once and for all—I'm in."
"Starting tonight, I am running for the President of the United States," he said. "Yeah."
