Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson speaks at Macalester

Gary Johnson, the Libertarian Party’s presidential candidate, will speak Friday at Macalester College in St. Paul, as part of a three-week national tour.

Remember his name: He may turn out to be a factor in the presidential election, as the Libertarian Party projects that he’ll pull votes from Mitt Romney in swing states.

Johnson is scheduled to appear Friday from 1 to 3 p.m. in Mac’s Hill Ballroom at Kagin Commons.

He’s trying to hit more than a dozen colleges on the tour that began this week:

  • Sept. 17 — West Chester University, West Chester, Pa.
  • Sept. 18 — New York University, New York City
  • Sept. 19 — University of New Hampshire, Durham, N.H.
  • Sept. 20 — Duke University, Durham, N.C.
  • Sept. 21 — Macalester College, St. Paul

  • Sept. 25 — Green River Community College, Auburn, Wash. (tentative)
  • Sept. 26 — Arizona State University, Tempe
  • Sept. 26 — University of Nevada, Las Vegas

    I like Gary Johnson

    The fact that he’s speaking on campuses tells you where he believes his votes will come from, which shouldn’t hurt Romney.

    Gary Johnson is a fraud

    Former Gov. Gary Johnson is NOT a libertarian. As Governor he sent the only person whom Toney Aneya failed to commute his death sentence in the early 90’s to his death.

    Steve Chapman of the Chicago Tribune is a real libertarian and opposes capital punishment as it gives the government the most absolute power, that of life or death to the individual.
