Trumbull tea party group hopes for third party presidential candidate

Posted: Updated:

The Trumbull County chapter of Campaign for Liberty, a tea party group, heard arguments Thursday to get Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson on the Ohio Ballot.

Johnson has launched a national movement as a third party candidate. Ohio Libertarians say given the options, it may be time for a third choice.

“Well, the best two reasons to consider the libertarian party are the choices for candidates for the republican and democratic parties,” said John Flocker, a member of the Ohio Libertarians.

Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson ran for president in 2012 and got one percent of the vote.

The latest CNN ORC poll shows Johnson with nine percent of the vote nationwide, an unprecedented amount for a libertarian candidate.
