Description

Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson would run for president again in four years if he's not elected in November, the candidate announced during a town hall meeting Tuesday night. "As long as I'm relevant, I will continue this through 2016," Johnson said during the meeting, which was simulcast live online. A former two-term governor of New Mexico, Johnson initially sought the Republican nomination for president in 2011, but he switched to the Libertarian Party in May after struggling to gain traction in state and national polls. Through the Libertarian Party, Johnson's name will be included on ballots in 47 states on Election Day, and a CNN/ORC poll in early September suggested that he could take as much as 3 percent of the vote.
