Gary Johnson: Coming to a ballot near you

When voters hit the polls countrywide, they’ll see at least three options for president. One of them is former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson. As the Libertarian candidate, he’s pitching himself as fiscally conservative and socially liberal.

“I'm going to be the only candidate that doesn't want to bomb Iran. I'm going to be the only candidate that wants to get out Afghanistan now—and the wars. I'm going to be the only candidate that wants to end the drug war. I'm going to be the only candidate that wants to bring about marriage equality, believing that it’s a constitutionally guaranteed right.”

I got a chance to speak with him about what it means to be a third-party candidate for president in a country that’s increasingly frustrated with its leaders. Read up on his positions regarding the drug war, the Tea Party and minimal government.

Ex-guv is ready to throw down with the donkeys and elephants

Gary Johnson changed his party affiliation and became the Libertarian presidential candidate in May. He needs to poll at 15 percent to get into the televised debates between ex-Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and President Obama. The Libertarian candidate for president spoke with the Alibi about how his new party is working out, his opinion of Gov. Susana Martinez and what minimal government really means.
