There's been a lot of coverage of Gary Johnson in Indiana this week, after he spoke at the US Conference of Mayors.


INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Gary Johnson addressed the U.S. Conference of Mayors in Indianapolis Monday, saying he’s optimistic about his campaign.
The Libertarian candidate for president will be on the ballot in all 50 states and believes he has a chance to win.

That’s what every candidate says, but Johnson is getting more attention than your average third party candidate.[...]


From the Indianapolis Star:

Gary Johnson came to Indianapolis in sneakers and with a message: Libertarians, he said, “take the best” ideas from the Democratic and Republican parties. But will voters listen?

America is peppered with conflicted Republicans — loyal members of the Grand Old Party who simply cannot tolerate the notion of voting for Donald Trump, but who also find the idea of casting a ballot for Hillary Clinton unimaginable, if not sacrilegious.

It’s a quandary for many of you. If you’re among those in this political black hole, I feel for you.

And, so, today I am here to help. I’ll do that by introducing my troubled Republican friends to Gary Johnson, the Libertarian Party nominee for president. He’s a former two-term Republican governor of New Mexico and, thanks to this year’s political discontent, he notched a head-turning 10 percent in a recent national poll.

From WRTV:

INDIANAPOLIS -- Less than 24 hours after Hillary Clinton addressed the U.S. Conference of Mayors in Indianapolis, another presidential candidate paid the Circle City a visit.

Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson told hundreds of mayors at the JW Marriott that when it comes to his candidacy this election cycle … why not?



Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson says he relishes playing the spoiler in the presidential race. The former New Mexico governor addressed the U.S. Conference of Mayors in Indianapolis Monday.

Libertarian Gary Johnson’s speech to the mayors conference was essentially a recitation of his policy positions – everything from imposing term limits to legalizing marijuana to his solution for affordable housing.

“If you just ask an architect to design affordable housing without regard to any rules or regulations or any laws that are on the books, I guarantee you that affordable housing would be very, very affordable,” Johnson says.[...]


From NUVO.net:

Thirteen minutes was all it took for Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson to deliver his campaign message Monday on why he thinks America’s mayors should stand with him this election season.

Johnson, the former Republican governor of New Mexico, accepted the U.S. Conference of Mayors’ invitation to speak at this year’s gathering.

while he was at this conference, Gov Gary restated his opposition to the Founders' Constitution and advocated to make the federal district of Columbia into its own state. Complete with two senators!
