1. Libertarian Party picks Gary Johnson as its presidential candidate

Libertarians picked former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson as their presidential candidate on Sunday. The former Republican, who also ran as the Libertarian candidate in 2012, slammed Donald Trump, saying the presumptive GOP nominee's call to deport 11 million undocumented immigrants and other immigration policies are "just racist." Johnson got his desired running mate, former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld. Libertarians are betting they will win more votes than ever in this election, given the unfavorable ratings of both Trump and Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton.
