WASHINGTON - Gary Johnson is the 2016 libertarian candidate for President of the United States. He was the republican governor of New Mexico from 1995 – 2003.
He was also the libertarian candidate for president in 2012, and received just under 1% of the popular vote. Johnson is working to receive at least 15% support in an average of five national polls leading up to the debates, so that he can participate in televised debates and have more people across the country hear his message.
He sat down with Fox 5’s political reporter Ronica Cleary to discuss his stance on marijuana legalization, why he decided run as a libertarian and what, if anything, he has in common with Donald Trump.
