Two minor party presidential candidates campaigned in Ohio on Friday. In Columbus, Green Party hopeful Dr. Jill Stein called for higher taxes on the rich to pay for expanded government programs. Libertarian Party hopeful Gary Johnson campaigned in Beavercreek, Bowling Green, and Streetsboro with his call to slash taxes on everyone and drastically cut government spending. Ohio Public Radio’s Bill Cohen reports on their platforms and on a long-shot scenario where one of them helps elect one of the major party candidates they don’t like.
