Gary Johnson ready to announce presidential run
Former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson will announce his candidacy for president next week in New Hampshire. Johnson mentioned a “major announcement in New Hampshire” in a press release Tuesday.
Johnson will “discuss his plans for the 2012 election” at a news conference in the New Hampshire State Capital building in Concord. An event on the press release for later that night is the “public kick-off event.”
The press release highlights some themes that Johnson may be focusing on during his presidential run:
He is vocal in his opposition to U.S. involvement in Libya, and has called for an end to American military involvement in both Afghanistan and Iraq. He supports marijuana legalization and advocates common-sense immigration reform.
