Former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson is in New Hampshire this week testing the waters for a possible presidential run. He'll be in Manchester tonight for the New Hampshire Young Republicans Christmas Party. Johnson is also scheduled to make stops in Concord, Keene, Lebanon, Manchester, Nashua, and Portsmouth.
Johnson is not your typical Republican presidential candidate. During a meeting with the editorial board of the Concord Monitor on Tuesday, Johnson expressed his support for ending the war in Afghanistan and legalizing marijuana. He is also fiscally conservative to the extreme, calling for a 43 percent cut in government spending.
