Gary Johnson Declares

Gary Johnson has officially declared his candidacy to be the Republican Presidential nominee. He is the first Republican to throw his hat into the ring after President Obama signified the start of his campaign earlier this month

Unlike the other contenders for the nomination Johnson has skipped over the usual first step of forming an exploratory committee and instead will host a kick-start event on Friday in Manchester, New Hampshire.

Speaking on the steps of the New Hampshire State House the former Governor of New Mexico said, “today's mess didn't just happen. We elected it -- one senator, member of Congress and president at a time.”
