Recent presidential polls are indicating that Georgia could become a little less red and a little more blue after next week’s election results come in. Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson was in Atlanta yesterday for a rally, hoping to capitalize on the purple nature of Georgia this election cycle.
“My pitch to voters is: look nobody wants to vote,” Johnson says. “I don’t find anyone that really wants to vote for Trump or Clinton. There is a principled alternative to both of them.”
Governor Gary Johnson believes he is that principled alternative. That was the message he shared at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Atlanta yesterday. But even though Johnson is considered by most to be a long shot for the presidency, he still considers his campaign to be a success for the Libertarian party.
