WASHINGTON Former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson, the Libertarian Party nominee for president, knew that running for the White House wouldnt be easy.
But he didnt know it would be this difficult, either.
I naively thought this was going to be a fair process the same process I encountered in New Mexico, where I got a fair shake, the former two-term New Mexico governor said in a Journal interview. Running for president of the United States? Its a club and I didnt belong.
Johnson, 59, initially sought the Republican presidential nomination, but he was not invited to participate in most televised primary debates. It hurt not only his ability to get his message heard, but also his fundraising.
The fiscally conservative and socially liberal Johnson abandoned his Republican presidential bid in late December 2011 and sought the Libertarian Party nomination instead. He secured that nomination in May and is currently on the ballot in 47 states, including New Mexico.
Johnson said he is running for president to slash federal spending, restore civil liberties he says are eroding and bring American troops home from foreign wars.
