On June 11th, Gary Johnson hosted an hour-long Google Hangout sponsored by his political advocacy committee, Our America Initiative. Typically, the former New Mexico governor and Libertarian Party presidential candidate hosts one Hangout a month.

The good news: there are hundreds of Libertarian candidates who are. We are working to keep them on the ballot (which involves fighting legal battles from both Republicans and Democrats), and promote them.
