Gary Johnson: GOP ‘Abandoned’ Me

You couldn’t be blamed if you hadn’t heard that Gary Johnson is running for the president. The former New Mexico governor now says the Republican Party “abandoned him” and he may switch and still run for president as a Libertarian. He said, “I feel abandoned by the Republican Party. The Republican Party has left me by the wayside.” Johnson has so far been excluded from nearly every debate, because he has not met the qualifications—that he has at least 1 percent of the vote. He added, “If I’d have been included in 16 of the last debates, we wouldn’t be having this conversation.”
