While the presumptive Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein courts the Bernie Sanders supporters protesting at the DNC, Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson says he has decided to take the opposite approach.
“I’m trying to keep a low profile here,” he told the FOX Business Network’s Charles Payne. “I’m trying to be respectful of the fact that Hillary is getting the nomination, but I really hope to be able to be on the presidential debate stage come September.”
And that just might happen for the former New Mexico governor, who according to the latest CNN/ORC poll gets 9% of the vote in a four-way matchup including Stein, who gets 3% (15% is needed to make it to the debate stage).
“I’ve got differences when it comes to Hillary Clinton. I really don’t believe that government has the answer. I think that lower taxes, less regulation… And then personal freedom and liberty… it’s important to all of us,” he said.
