Unmoderated Chat with Gary Johnson

Former Gov. Gary Johnson
Former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson, who is seeking the Republican nomination for president, will be the first candidate to engage in a live unmoderated “town hall” video chat on Yowie.

You can participate and follow the discussion at The New Mexican's website. The event is scheduled for 6 p.m. Mountain Time on Wednesday.

“Yowie enables me to have a direct digital dialogue with the public and engage in an open Q&A on key issues like smaller government, the economy, drug policy reform, tax reform, or any question a participant wishes to ask — no topic is off limits,” Johnson said in a news release.

Johnson’s campaign is considered a longshot. Lagging in the polls, he has been excluded from all but two of the GOP debates so far.

“Considering this is the first unmoderated online video chat by a U.S. Presidential candidate, we hope it sets a good example of how technology can help further bridge the gap between voters and their elected officials and candidates,” Johnson said.
