The Libertarian Party candidate for president is in Minnesota today (FRI). Gary Johnson served as the governor of New Mexico for two terms before leaving the Republican Party at the end of 2011. He is holding an afternoon event at Macalester College in St. Paul today as part of a nationwide college tour. Before leaving the GOP, Johnson had sought the party’s presidential nomination, but was only allowed to participate in some candidate debates. He holds some standard Republican views like support for lower taxes and spending cuts, but diverges from the party in support for ending the War On Drugs and drastically decreasing the US military presence overseas. Johnson’s name will appear on the presidential ballot in all 50 states.
