Libertarian Gary Johnson to campaign in Milwaukee on Thursday

Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson will be making his first campaign stop in Wisconsin this week.

Johnson is slated to hold a campaign rally Thursday night in Milwaukee.

Third party candidates are getting more attention this cycle as Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton both struggle with low favorability numbers both in Wisconsin and nationally.

The latest Marquette University Law School poll released earlier this month showed Johnson with 10 percent support among registered voters and 9 percent among likely voters. Clinton led among registered voters with 42 percent, followed by Trump at 33 percent. And among likely voters Clinton got 47 percent compared with 34 percent for Trump.
