"No way that if you're running for president and you're not in the presidential debates — 100 million people watching the debates — there's no way that you could win," Libertarian Presidential Candidate Gary Johnson told Newsy.
Gary Johnson may just get his wish — or at least, the Libertarian presidential candidate is close enough in the polls the venues hosting this fall's debates have to prepare for him.
