Two Sponsors Pull Out From Debates Over Exclusion Of 2-Term Governor Gary Johnson

At least two of the original sponsors of the 2012 presidential debates have pulled their support over the exclusion of Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson, arguing that the commission which runs the debates is locked into a two-party outlook.

Since the above was posted which reports two sponsors pulled out, a third was considering withdrawing as well but may have been pressured to stay in: BHH New York.

Philips Electronics and the YWCA have withdrawn their sponsorships.
