Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson will be on-stage today at Purdue University. He will join Purdue President Mitch Daniels for a public discussion at the France A. Córdova Recreational Sports Center. Purdue says it has invited each candidate that will appear on the Indiana ballot to speak at the campus and Johnson is the first to agree to an appearance.
Johnson, a former two-term Republican governor of New Mexico, previously ran for president as a Libertarian in 2012. Former two-term Massachusetts Governor William Weld is joining him on the Libertarian ticket.
Prior to launching a political career, he grew a mechanical contracting business into a 1,000-employee enterprise. Johnson has described himself as the "nation’s most fiscally conservative governor" during his time in office.
Due to heavy demand, all free advance tickets have been distributed, but organizers say some may be available at the door. You can connect to more details by clicking here.
