Libertarians pick ex-New Mexico Gov. Johnson for president
ORLANDO - The Libertarian Party has nominated former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson as its presidential candidate just as it did in 2012.
Delegates to the party's convention in Orlando on Sunday picked Johnson on the second ballot over Austin Petersen, the founder of The Libertarian Republic magazine, and anti-computer virus company founder John McAfee.
Johnson got about 1 percent of the popular vote in 2012.
But the party is hoping for a strong showing in November because of the deep unpopularity polls show for presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump and Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton.
The 63-year-old Johnson was governor of New Mexico from 1995 to 2003 as a Republican.
