Richmond, VA (WTVR)- Libertarian presidential candidate and former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson will visit Richmond later this week.

Johnson will travel to the Maggie Walker Governor’s School on Thursday to meet with students.

Maggie Walker is the only one of Virginia’s 19 academic Governor’s Schools whose mission focuses on government and international studies.

The Libertarian group at Maggie Walker is known as the Students of Liberty, and they encourage “the study of the ideal of a society of free individuals, through promoting the benefits of free markets, civil society, and individual liberty.”

Johnson was the Republican Governor of New Mexico from 1995-2003. He believes that decisions should be made based on cost-benefit analysis rather than strict ideology.
