Libertarian Gary Johnson campaigns in Seattle
SEATTLE (AP) — Libertarian Party presidential nominee Gary Johnson is rallying supporters in Seattle.
Johnson, the former two-term governor of New Mexico, plans a Saturday afternoon rally followed by a fundraiser at the Sheraton hotel downtown.
Johnson will be joined by his vice-presidential running mate, former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld, as well as former Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic and comedian Drew Carey, the co-owner of the Seattle Sounders.
In an Elway Poll last month of Washington voters Johnson was a distant third, behind Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump.
Johnson hopes to appeal to voters who are dissatisfied with both of the major party nominees. Washington state typically votes Democratic in presidential elections, last opting for a Republican when Ronald Reagan carried the state in 1984.
