Gary Johnson to Offer Online Commentary

Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson has been shut out of the presidential debate Wednesday night in Denver, but he hasn't been shut down from offering his views on the issues facing the country. Johnson says he will provide live, online commentary in an effort to keep his name before the public via Twitter and other "new media."

Johnson filed an antitrust suit last week alleging that the commission organizing the presidential debates and the major parties had conspired to prevent his participation. The suit hasn't been officially resolved, and only President Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney are being allowed to participate Wednesday night.

Johnson backers hope that he will be included in the last two presidential debates, in New York and Florida later this month, but prospects for that happening appear to be remote at best.
