Former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson, the once Republican presidential primary candidate now vying for the Libertarian Party nomination, sat down with the "Real News" panel Monday. The former governor discussed his exit from the Republican race, the inclusiveness of the GOP, defending one's personal wealth on the campaign trail, and how he will stack up in the general election if he can secure the Libertarian Party ticket. Johnson said that if he wins the Libertarian nomination and makes it in polls from six percent, where he is now in hypothetical match-ups with President Obama and presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney, to fifteen percent; allowing him on the debate floor, "anything can happen." Johnson argued on "Real News" Monday that he trumps President Obama on civil liberties issues, and Romney on fiscal issues.
