Johnson, the former New Mexico governor, said of the major party candidates: “There is only a couple of voices being heard (in this campaign), and it’s tweedledumb and tweedledee.”

From PolicyMic -

10:20pm: Gary Johnson: “Wasting your vote is voting for someone you don’t believe in.” [huge cheers]

 

From Washington Post – (continued from quote above)

“…That’s wasting your vote. I’m asking everybody here, I’m asking everybody watching this nationwide to waste your vote on me.”

 

From NPR.org -

Jill Stein, opening statement:

“A vote for me is a vote for the solutions that we need for jobs, not corporate tax breaks, forhealth care as a human right, public higher education that’s free, ending student debt, and downsizing the military to pay for it.”
