“Libertarian candidate for President Gary Johnson is set to speak at a campaign rally at the University of Utah on Saturday [August 6].

“So far, nearly 600 people have signed up on the campaign website to attend the rally, being held from 2 to 4 p.m. in the ballroom of the A. Ray Olpin Student Union building.

“‘There has been a very large interest in this event,’ Apollo Pazell, a consultant to the Salt Lake-based Johnson campaign, said. ‘We’re very happy with how it turned out.’

“Pazell said Johnson’s running mate, former Massachusetts Gov. William Weld, will also speak at the rally. Johnson, the former Republican governor of New Mexico, will be introduced by state Sen. Mark Madsen.

“The Saratoga Springs lawmaker, who is not running for re-election, recently announced he was switching from the Republican to the Libertarian Party and endorsing Johnson.

“Madsen said Utah voters don’t have to choose between ‘two unsavory nominees,’ the Republican presidential pick, Donald Trump, or the Democratic choice, Hillary Clinton.”
