Gary Johnson Continues Whining – Threatens Third Party Run
The former Governor of New Mexico, Gary Johnson is getting frustrated with a lack of invitations to GOP debates. Now, he’s threatening to drop the party and go 3rd party.
Johnson is a Republican candidate for president, but has been polling dead last or not at all in many national polls lately. Due to his polling numbers, Johnson has only been invited to 5 of 19 of the debates. “We qualified for the CNBC debate,” Johnson complained “but they wouldn’t even return our phone calls” he stated in a Fox News interview with Neil Cavuto .
In a sort of revenge play, Gary Johnson is threatening to split the GOP vote by running as a third party candidate. More-than-likely, he may grab some of the independent vote, but not likely to be anything election changing.
Wouldn’t you be whining if you were a successful two term Governor who has been excluded from debates and polls, while Santorum and Huntsman were included? The odds are heavily against any candidate getting elected, but not giving someone with his background exposure, that he’s earned, by his record and his polling numbers where included is not the way the free market of ideas should operate.
