Former NM Governor and gay marriage supporter runs for Libertarian presidential nomination

Santa Fe, New Mexico — Gary Johnson, a gay marriage supporter and former governor of New Mexico, announced on Wednesday he is running for the Libertarian nomination for president.

Johnson had tried and failed to gain traction as a Republican candidate. He said that abandoning the Republican party was both "a difficult decision and an easy one."

"I have a lot of Republican history, but in the final analysis, I am a Libertarian. That is: someone who is fiscally very conservative but holds freedom-based positions on the issues that govern personal behavior."

Aside from supporting gay marriage, Johnson also supports legalization of marijuana. He is also pro-choice.
