Johnson: Libertarianism is 'fast growing segment'

(CNN) - Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson weighed in Friday on his potential impact on the 2012 presidential race during an interview with CNN's "Newsroom."

"Where are the majority of Americans being represented by either of these two (parties). And I'll just tell you from my viewpoint, what I'm representing is the fastest growing segment of American politics today. The whole Libertarian movement," he said. "We'll see what happens on Election Day."

The other candidates, the other debate

(CNN) – On Tuesday night presidential candidates will lock horns in a debate in Chicago. The participants are not Republican or Democrat. They're third party candidates.

At tonight's debate: Jill Stein (Green Party), Gary Johnson (Libertarian Party), Virgil Goode (Constitution Party) and Rocky Anderson (Justice Party), all of whom have received little attention during this election. They're working to change that by pushing a message that focuses on issues that they believe are being ignored by Democrats and Republicans.

Libertarian leader: Republicans should apologize, not pledge

(CNN) - One day after Republican leaders unveiled their legislative agenda-dubbed "Pledge to America" - a top voice in the Libertarian Party said it is erroneously titled; instead, he says, it should be called "Apology to America."

The 21-page pledge was revealed Thursday and represents the Republican Party's proposed legislative agenda should they re-take control of Congress in November's midterm elections. It includes promises to slash taxes, reduce the size of government and reverse President Obama's health care reforms.

Libertarian Party executive director Wes Benedict ripped into the document and its Republican authors on Friday, saying in a statement "there are so many lies, distortions, hypocrisies, and idiocy in this document that it's hard to know where to start."
