On Tuesday, Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson announced that he, and running mate Bill Weld, will appear on the ballot in November in all 50 states and Washington, D.C. While speculation had it that the cannabis-friendly duo would not appear due to low polling numbers, a turnaround in support has led to his name appearing alongside Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, in the race for the presidential election.
At this point, we’re all pretty sick and tired of hearing about the upcoming elections in November. The presidential race once held great respect in the eyes of many Americans, but it’s quickly becoming a joking matter, mostly due to the ridiculous amount of time nominees spend bashing the other’s hairstyle or wardrobe. The real issues, like terrorism, poverty and the depleting educational systems in our country are being overshadowed by the “he said,” “she said,” campaigns the two mainstream candidates are running.

Many voters want an alternative option. Enter Gary Johnson. This libertarian candidate will not appear in the upcoming debates and was not even expected to appear on the ballot, but due to the demands of voters, Mr. Johnson will see his name appear on all 50 states’ ballots and also, Washington D.C.
Johnson released a statement Tuesday announcing to voters their new option of the next President of the United States.
With a majority of Americans wanting a choice other than Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, today we know for certain that on Election Day, every voter in America will have that alternative option.
Today we also know that the only other option on every American voter’s ballot will be myself and Gov. Weld. Gaining ballot access in all 50 states and the District of Columbia is a monumental task, as evidenced by the fact that we will be the only ticket after the Republicans and Democrats to do so.
Made possible by citizens like you
As a presidential hopeful, Johnson knows this remarkable feat wouldn’t have been possible without the support of millions of Americans who demanded an alternative option.
In the statement, Johnson thanks voters, contributors and activists, who never wavered in their support of the underdog.
It’s these people who will help drive the former president and CEO of Cannabis Sativa to become the president of our great nation.
With the popularity and support of Clinton and Trump dwindling every day, Johnson believes now that his name will appear on all ballots, he stands a real chance at taking the election.
While it is nearly unheard of that a candidate not of the Democrat or Republican Party would take such a high-ranking office, Johnson is sure, with the continued support he’s been receiving, he can do just that.
All of America will be waiting on pins and needles during the November elections, eager to see who our next Commander and Chief will be.
Now, with the option of Gary Johnson, there’s a possibility the outcome might not be as bleak as many citizens feared.
