Gary Johnson is moving. A few days ago, I told you where several of New Mexico’s former politicos are hanging out.
I said former Gov. Gary Johnson usually could be found in the mountains of New Hampshire doing something adventurous plus a little politicking.
Johnson felt like the victim in the famous movie “Catch 22.”
He couldn’t get on the stage with other candidates for debates because his poll numbers were so low.
And his poll numbers were low because the national GOP and its state affiliates omitted him from the ballots they prepared for news organizations to use in determining the candidates invited to speak.
It was obvious to Johnson that it had been decided in a boardroom somewhere that the Republican Party did not want him to be a candidate.
My guess is because Johnson is too conservative on fiscal issues and too liberal on social issues.
So Johnson decided to concentrate on New Hampshire, which has an early primary and is more in line with his beliefs.
But a good showing in New Hampshire was looking less likely.
So Johnson started talking with Libertarian Party officials, who had been interested in him for 12 years. In 2000, Johnson likely could have had the nomination for the asking. Now he has to work for it because nine other Libertarians have entered the race.
