Struggling Presidential Candidate Switches Parties

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.

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