Representatives From Ten States Have Endorsed Gary Johnson For President

 

Winning as a third party candidate is difficult in the two party system. The majority rules electoral college system makes it hard for a candidate in a three way race to get the 270 votes needed to become President. Although, if one were to build a big enough coalition it is possible. Even if that doesn’t happen there is at least a way to keep the other two candidates under 270 and throw the election to the House. Gary Johnson has already started making progress on this task. State Senators and Representatives, as well as a Governor and a Congressman, from ten states have endorsed Gary Johnson for President.
