Gary Johnson might not be running for president in 2016 yet, but last year’s Libertarian Party candidate certainly sounds like he’s up for another run.
In an appearance at George Washington University on Monday night, Johnson not only sought to distinguish himself from his old affiliation — the Republican Party — but also took on what he believes are the failures of the Democratic Party.
Johnson received about 1 percent of the popular vote in the 2012 election, and he has not announced any intention to run for president in 2016. On Monday night, he said it’s just too early.
“Who’s got a voice that’s fiscally more conservative than any Republican, and who’s got a voice that’s more liberal than any Democrat? Me,” he said in an interview after the speech.
