Election 101: Who is Gary Johnson?
Gary Johnson, who has already scaled Mt. Everest, has chosen the presidency as his next summit.
3. Where does he stand on the issues?
Johnson has fiscally-conservative but socially-progressive views. He champions smaller government, lower taxes, looser business regulations, marijuana legalization, gay unions, and pro-choice politics. He’s often said his highest priority is balancing America’s federal budget. Johnson is also a staunch opponent of US involvement in Afghanistan and Iraq, and has called for an end to military exercises in those countries.
