Libertarian leaning former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson announced his run for the Republican presidential nomination in New Hamsphire today.
According to the Union Leader, Johnson, in his annoucement speech, said:
“Our leaders in Washington, DC, have ‘led’ America to record unemployment, a devalued currency, banking scandals, the mortgage crisis, drug crisis, economic crisis, loss of our nation’s industrial might — and a long list of other reminders our nation is way off course.”
Though hardly considered a frontrunner, Johnson could make a formidable presence at the presidential debates.
