ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Libertarian Party presidential candidate Gary Johnson is set to hold a rally in the state that launched his political career.

The former New Mexico governor is scheduled Thursday to hold a rally at the Albuquerque Convention Center.

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump held a similar campaign event at the same location in May. That rally turned violent and caused thousands of dollars of damage.

Johnson is running with former Massachusetts governor William Weld.

Libertarians including Johnson are pushing for reduced spending and taxes, saying the federal government has gotten too big across the board.
