An October 3 Washington Post article seems intent on casting Libertarian Gary Johnson in a negative light based on his performance as two-term governor of New Mexico.
But for those who think government is too big, their portrayal showed Johnson to be the penultimate outsider who resisted unrelenting pressure from special interests and their legislative allies, earning the nick name “Governor No.”
ABC-7 in Denver describes how Libertarians Governors Gary Johnson for president and William Weld for vice president are in play in the critical state of Colorado:
“Gary Johnson is a huge problem for Hillary Clinton right now," said [former Colorado Republican state chairman Dick] Wadhams, "and, also potentially a problem for Donald Trump because there are still lot of Republicans not convinced, and they might be looking at an alternative.”

Libertarian Gary Johnson Garners More Major Newspaper Endorsements
Alexandria – The Chicago Tribune and The Detroit News join The Richmond Times-Dispatch, The Winston-Salem Journal and the New Hampshire Union-Leader in endorsing Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson.
Both the Tribune and The Detroit News pointed out that Johnson and Weld, unlike the other tickets, have public executive experience and are candidates Americans can be proud to vote for.
For nearly three decades, Democratic U.S. representative Richard Neal has enjoyed czar-like status in largely rural western Massachusetts, where he has scored one re-election victory after another, mostly unopposed.
The Libertarian Party is America's third largest political party, founded in 1971. Our vision is for a world in which all individuals can freely exercise the natural right of sole dominion over their own lives, liberty and property by building a political party that elects Libertarians to public office, and moving public policy in a libertarian direction.
