ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson has obtained a spot on the Minnesota ballot after gathering more than 3,000 signatures.

A spokesman for the Minnesota Secretary of State said Thursday that Johnson met the requirements to get on the November ballot with running mate Jim Gray.

Johnson, a former Republican, served two terms as governor of New Mexico from 1995 to 2003.

His platform includes cutting taxes and government spending, repealing the federal health care law, legalizing marijuana, keeping abortion legal and allowing gay marriage.
