The 2012 Libertarian Party presidential nominee Gary Johnson has formally entered the 2016 campaign trail, hoping to be “the voice of reason” against the two major parties. The former governor of New Mexico bills himself as a “classic liberal.””I want to take this opportunity to announce my candidacy for president. I am hoping to get the Libertarian nomination for president in 2016,” Johnson said on the Fox Business Network on Wednesday.”On my deathbed, I’m hoping that I look back and believe that I was the voice of reason in all this, regardless of how many votes I end up garnering,” he added.
