From NBC News on May 19:
“Favored Libertarian Party presidential candidate Gary Johnson has agreed to join forces with former Massachusetts Governor William Weld for the Libertarian Party’s nomination. Weld will run for the party’s vice presidential slot, possibly bolstering the third party’s appeal to general election voters.
“Weld was a popular governor in the 1990s with crossover appeal and could boost the legitimacy of a third-party option for voters disgruntled by presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump and likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
“‘It brings an enormous amount of credibility to what it is I’m doing,’ Johnson, the former governor of New Mexico, said in a statement. ‘I’m unbelievably flattered by this and humbled.’”
