New Mexico College Republicans chair to support Gary Johnson

Gary Johnson

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) – The chair of New Mexico College Republicans has announced that he will vote for Libertarian Party presidential candidate Gary Johnson over GOP nominee Donald Trump.

Michael Aguilar told a group of Johnson supporters on Saturday that he couldn’t support Trump after a video showed the wealthy businessman making lewd comments about women. Aguilar and other College Republicans in the state announced their support for Johnson during a rally for the Libertarian at the University of New Mexico.

Aguilar says Trump hasn’t demonstrated that he had the temperament or the character to be president.

Aguilar made his announcement the same day New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez, a Republican, said she’s couldn’t support Trump for president after his lewd remarks. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
