Free Media and our partners at Heat Street were following Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson on his visit to New York City. The governor came to town to accelerate his campaign and do a wave of interviews with national media.
Riding a wave of very successful interviews, Governor Johnson started his day with an appearance on MSNBC. What happened during that interview was the biggest news he has made since his campaign started, and not for the right reasons.
The governor made a very significant gaffe, but he also thoroughly owned it. When you spend some time with him you realize that says a lot about the man. He is humble, reasonable, and as he told us “he was born with an overdose of common sense.”
