Gary Johnson on All But Three Ballots

The Libertarian Party reports that Gary Johnson will be on the ballot in at least 47 states, plus the District of Columbia.

The party is involved in litigation to get him on the ballot in the three remaining states, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania and Michigan, where a judge ruled last week that Johnson could not appear on the ballot because he also ran as a Republican in the state’s February presidential primary.

Johnson is already on the ballot in two more states than the 2008 Libertarian nominee, Bob Barr.

Barr, a former Georgia congressman, won just 0.4 percent of the national vote. But in Missouri and North Carolina, the two closest states in 2008, he won enough votes to flip the outcome.
