Matthew Simmons/WireImage(SANTA FE, N.M.) — Former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson made little headway as a Republican candidate for president, so now he’ll run as a Libertarian.

The two-party system, he says, is rigged for the wealthiest and best-known candidates in a handful of states.

If elected, Johnson vows to cut spending, support abortion rights, and legalize marijuana.
