CONCORD – Former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson said Thursday he is seeking the 2012 Republican nomination for President of the United States.
Johnson, who served as governor from 1995 to 2003, made the announcement on the steps of the New Hampshire State House.
“Our leaders in Washington, DC, have ‘led’ America to record unemployment, a devalued currency, banking scandals, the mortgage crisis, drug crisis, economic crisis, loss of our nation’s industrial might — and a long list of other reminders our nation is way off course,” Johnson said.
“Why am I telling you this? Because America is better than this. And because I can help fix it. I’m a fix-it man,” he said.
