Posted on 08/12/2016 11:05:48 AM PDT by CedarDave
COLUMBUS, Ohio While Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson is set to appear on ballots in at least 39 states, swing state Ohio is among the places where his supporters are still working to get the former New Mexico governors name out to voters this fall.
Whether hes successful could make a difference to Republicans, particularly the fortunes of GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, who is in a close race in the state with Democrat Hillary Clinton. Johnson on the ballot could complicate the Ohio race for Trump if conservatives who want a smaller government want a choice other than the celebrity billionaire.

Tactics like this make one wonder whether this is all supported behind the scenes with money and legal support by the Clinton camp.

Johnson and Weld will neuter your 2nd amendment
I’m more libertarian than these guys, and I’m not even a libertarian.
The Libertarian Party should just change their name to The Contrarian Party.
The article says they are trying the same tactic to get on the ballot in Pennsylvania.
Gary Johnson has sold out the Libertarian party and philosophy.
The Ohio presidential ballot is closed as of Wednesday.
As in, two days ago.
Ballotpedia is your friend...
This is a bizarre year. The Libertarian ticket consists of a eGOP candidate for president and the VP candidate is a liberal Democrat.
The Republican candidate is a conservative Democrat. The Democrat candidate is a neocon warhawk.
At least the Green Party candidate is still a moonbat.
...or the Republican wing of the Uni-Party.
The MSM better get their narrative straight. How could Johnson entering the race in Ohio cause complications for Trump? We've been informed Clinton is ahead in all the battleground states by double if not triple digits. If so, what difference does it make?
There’s more than one so call conservative who is entering the race at this late date. One can only deduce it’s to steal away Trump voters. A few voters here and a few there add up and can change a tight race. Remember how a few hanging chads would have changed history.
Perhaps, except in polls, Trump does better when Stein & Johnson are listed, meaning they hurt Clinton.
Duuuuuuuuuuuude .... Weeeeeeeeeeeeeed
I am not a fan of Johnson who I don’t recognize as a true libertarian. That said, the fact that the two main parties can successfully use their power in state legislatures to block the third largest political party in the United States from access to the ballot in so many states is disgraceful.
Or the Romney/#NeverTrump camp.
Is Jill Stein on the ballot? She deserves to be on ballot in Ohio.. Especially since she is against taxing hoolahoops and she supports giving liberals free Brain Ct Scans and Deodorant!
Ordinarily the Ohio Secretary of State (R) would rule Libertarian out of order. However, with Kasich trying like Hell to stop Trump, anything is possible. Trump is not only fighting Hillary and Media but the GOP
Just reporting what was in the article. Apparently the required number of petition signatures for Charlie Earl to get on the ballot (subject to signature verification, of course) were submitted on time. For Johnson’s name to appear depends on the legality of the bait and switch.
