Libertarian Gary Johnson Targeting Wisconsin

Phil Anderson, Wisconsin state campaign chairman for Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson, says the campaign will now focus on and target Wisconsin.

Johnson will be in Milwaukee Thursday night for a campaign event at Serb Hall.

Anderson says Thursday's event will be the official kick-off to a late push to steal the Badger State in November's general election.

 In this month’s Marquette law school poll, Johnson was pulling support from 10 percent of likely and registered Wisconsin voters, but still trailed Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by more than 20 points.

Mordecai Lee, a former democratic state legislator turned UWM political expert, says Johnson will pull votes from southeast Wisconsin Republicans who are unhappy with Donald Trump.

Lee said, “So I suspect that Gary Johnson is going to do well is Wisconsin politically. He’s going to do well in the Milwaukee media market, especially in the three suburban counties, and I think that’s exactly why he’s here.”

Johnson's Thursday evening event is free and open to the public. Doors open at 6:00pm, and the event starts at 7:00pm.
