Green's Stein, Libertarian Johnson make New Hampshire ballot
The Associated Press
CONCORD (AP) — The leading third party candidates for president — Libertarian Gary Johnson and the Green Party's Jill Stein — will appear on the New Hampshire ballot in November.
Both have submitted the necessary 3,000 signatures to be listed on the ballot as presidential candidates. Stein's supporters delivered stacks of paperwork to the Secretary of State's office Friday, while Johnson had already qualified.
Stein and Johnson saw little success in their 2012 bids, with Johnson winning 1.3 million votes and Stein less than half a million. But both are hoping to capitalize on the electorate's negative feelings toward Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton to energize new supporters.
Johnson recently campaigned in the state.
