BOSTON (AP) — Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson and his running mate, one-time Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld, are making a campaign stop in Boston.
The two former Republican governors are hoping to highlight their ticket in an election where many voters are unhappy with the Republican and Democratic nominees.
The two are planning to hold a rally Saturday on Boston Common, just steps from where Weld served as the state’s chief executive in the 1990s.
The two are eager to gain enough support in public opinion polls — at least 15 percent — to secure a spot on the debate stage with Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
Earlier this month, Weld told reporters in Boston that he’s seen interest and fundraising pick up as Republican nominee Donald Trump’s campaign has struggled.
