Teapot Party candidate Gary Johnson is steamed about being excluded from CNN’s Republican debate on June 13. “I didn’t crawl out from under a rock to run for president of the United States,” the former two-term New Mexico governor tells Fox. “I’m that other choice, but I’ve got to have a shot to be able to present that.”
Johnson was included in Fox’s GOP debate on May 5. The June 13 debate, sponsored by CNN, includes every candidate from the May 5 debate except Johnson. How come? CNN claims Johnson doesn’t have enough public support, but Johnson contends his name “wasn’t even on” some of the polls that CNN used to determine the debaters. As of now they are Reps Ron Paul and Michelle Bachman, former Govs Milt Romney and Tim Pawlenty, Sen. Rick Santorum, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich and business Herman Cain.
